Someone Great ★★

Thoroughly unconvincing - the idealized lighting in the flashback scenes with Lakeith Stanfield, the Rolling Stone job across the country, really all of it. The conception of the friendship is a strong one, but only a few moments are really funny and, frankly, moving. The first is the visit to the rich kid played by Jaboukie Young-White, ratcheting up the absurdity. The second is the Selena song in the bodega. The rest plays as you'd expect it with each character getting their own moments, most of them unconvincing.
