Someone Great ★★★½

The perfect kind of Netflix film, Someone Great is an exceptionally cast, skillfully written, and vivaciously directed modern take on modern love making it perfect to watch in bed on a Saturday night while eating fruit snacks and sippin’ on a soda. Yes, the soundtrack is killer (all hail Lizzo! 🙌) while the reliance on drugs and alcohol for the purposes of comedy is a little too “look how cool we are bc we drink and smoke so much,” but the emotional beats work surprisingly well and are just raw and honest enough to elicit a genuine emotional response.
