    ★★★½

    "We're going to show those bums, we're going to make 'em choke on our continued success. Our continued headlines! Our continued awards! And power! And glory! We are gonna make those mother fuckers choke! Am I right?"

As a soon-to-be father of a daughter this film and especially its character interactions felt infinitely genuine and true and important. Every 12 year old and their parents should watch this film, R-rating be damned.
