The Worst Person in the World

The Worst Person in the World ★★★★

Remember when BOYHOOD came out and a bunch of folks were like, “but what about GIRLHOOD?” Well, you got something even better: WOMANHOOD. Funny, gentle, surprisingly accessible, yet unafraid to let our guide to growing up thirty and aimless make some thorny, questionable decisions throughout the twelve chapters (plus prologue and epilogue) that we spend with her. Possibly wraps up a bit too tidily for something so steeped in ambiguity, but who cares. When the emotions (not to mention playful stylistic choices) hit, they’re like mini ecstasy peaks that threaten to fry your brain on pure bliss.
