Come of Age
Verified purchase
A new take on the come of age genre. Julia Billington (All About E) is the aunt and although she shined in the serious moments of the movie, comedy is not really her strong point. I was just glad to see her in another film. As for the movie itself, Ellie already is out as gay, but she goes through the social angst of asking Abbie out, something that any teenager goes through in just the not so simple process of being accepted by another person. Gently done and well acted. Made me smile just realizing that the same things happened to me in high school (minus the dead aunt) and that each step in growing to adulthood is unique but the inner thoughts are the same.

I love this movieI
Verified purchase
This is one of the better movies involving coming out, and coming of age. It captures the awkwardness of being young, figuring out who you are, and liking someone. There were a few scenes that got me emotional because it was well done by the actresses. The director made excellent choices with this movie and I'll be watching more of her work. I highly recommend this movie!

Great RomCom
Verified purchase
We loved this film, the acting was topnotch, it was funny and touching and a great history lesson on LGBTQ rights. We first saw Rachel House as Paula in "The Hunt for the Wilderpeople" and her performance was quite different but spot on in both roles. Bridie Connell as Miss Trimble was hysterical!!

Lovely film… bit of a twist
Verified purchase
This film is sweet and funny and angsty in all the right places, with a bit of a twist you won’t see coming. My 13 year old and I both enjoyed it.
