Lol, why did I just find out that Forest Whitaker directed this???
Anyways, I like this movie. I know it’s more of a drama with romantic elements but the relationships especially the mother/daughter one just make me so sad.
I started getting that weird type of happy where you get teary eyed around 7 minutes and 46 seconds, so I had a pretty strong idea where this would end up aka me actually full on crying (like multiple tears streaming down my face) at 2 am on a Wednesday.
As an official rom com connoisseur, this was really cute and fun and I need it to get on streaming services ASAP, so more people can watch. I didn’t really…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie is just white privilege propaganda like how do you blow up your high school, somehow become the leader of a worldwide rebellion (??), trash Harvard in your admissions statement AND STILL get into Harvard, get a rep to help you since you’re viral and famous now (??) and go all the way to Europe to get a girl.
Anyways I still think every netflix high school centered film about a white boy would be ten times better if they focused on the gay black best friend. But that’s just my opinion.
