When You Finish Saving the World

When You Finish Saving the World ★★★★

Really enjoyed this funny and very cringy mother and son dramedy. Has the humor you might expect from Eisenberg’s script. I wish I’d seen it in a theater to hear the jokes land cause it had me chuckling in spite of my isolation. 

Character drives the story as we’re figuring out what to make of these self-absorbed people and aren’t instructed not to like them. We’re instead challenged to discover their redeemable qualities, and in this exercise I absolutely saw myself in them by the end. A self-effacing experience for me.
