i had very high hopes for this movie and i have very mixed feelings about it
some things i liked:
visually it’s stunning, overall feels very warm and welcoming
Asian lead!!! YES
LESBIANS IN FILM!!
definitely has a very beautiful message and just seeing lesbian relationships on screen is very comforting to my bi little heart
some things i didn’t like:
the teacher character (beats me what her name was) felt really useless to me, i was hoping for her to come back again and try help ellie but nope just felt very pointless
aster and ellie don’t really get enough screen time in my opinion
paul trying to kiss ellie was also pretty pointless to me, i guess it would make sense if fleshed out properly but there was no reason for it
also paul turning around and being homophobic out of nowhere and it never comes up again
i like this film but definitely don’t love.
