Slow to start but is satisfying in its conclusions...

This is a coming of age story in many ways. I can remember being in my early 30's and having many an existential inner confusion regarding what the heck I was doing on this planet. I think this shows a pretty realistic story of one particular life. Daphne is def angry that her life is unfulfilling in many ways. And she's confused as to how to make it better. Not uncommon. She behaves in ways that demonstrate that confusion (that can make her seem unlikeable). I think there is an element of her that is having trouble with the transition from 20's to 30's (she is asked her age and she says 20 something then corrects and says 31). But, then, something happens in a random fashion that makes her reevaluate. I found this all rather realistic. And I was happy at the outcome. Don't want to give much away. This is one young woman's story of bumping through life. Yes she is privileged and doesn't appreciate that fact. But she has a caring heart evidenced by how, in the very beginning of the film, she makes a sandwich for the homeless guy she knows she will pass on her way home from work. Hence her empathy makes her sensitive and that can be tough living in a place like London. This is a subtle film so if you don't like that genre you'll probably be bored. I found it quite good.

Finding hope within a life of despair.

I usually devalue films where people use hard drugs, because of the dangers of addiction. If you're into or curious about trying recreational drugs, I recommend the film "Harvard Man." But in this film, it does not appear that main characters get addicted (as most people would). My main point, here, is that Daphne's life looks pretty grim at the beginning of the movie, but things get better after that. A dark movie that ends up with some light.

It's a good movie

I enjoyed this movie. Maybe you have to live thru loss and sexual harassment and have been staring into the void at some point in your life idk. The subtitles go a bit ahead at some point in the middle of the movie, but it wasn't difficult to understand the dialogue.

I loved it...quite raw and relateable. I can see why some people don't like it, but really they just don't get it. If you've been here before, you will get it and you will root for Daphne and you will feel inspired too...in some way.

Narrative explores the difficulty of not feeling alive while going through the motions of life, but does so with such fine attention to detail, and with the contrast of the weight of death. Expertly filmed and written, in my opinion.
