Milkwater ★★★½

something about this movie really struck an emotional chord in me. it is a coming-of-age story that will appeal to a range of audiences who won’t grow up, either by choice or fashion. the protagonist’s journey from being selfish to selfless was very inspiring to watch. however the film’s sensitive consideration of the complexities of surrogacy and non-traditional family structures was what amazed me the most. it’s definitely very cheesy but the emotional core is solid and definitely won me over by the end.
