josh lewis’s review published on Letterboxd:
education system as ultimately an act of managing appearances. jackman legit excellent at this precise intersection of charm and vanity but not sure what finley's deal is as a filmmaker yet. beyond the cute, stylized mirrored opening/closing it doesn't feel like there's much happening here that isn't in the writing. that being said i've liked both of his first features well enough and can see the effort (especially in the subtle complications in the performances) so i'll wait patiently for the great one.
