Unusual but Good
Reviewed in the United States on October 24, 2019
I had never heard of this film until it popped up in the recommendations while I was looking at something else. I like Emma Roberts, so I decided to give it a shot, and I'm glad I did. Although its presentation is slightly offbeat and even comical at times, the subject matter is handled with the appropriate respect and provides thoughtful insight to mental illness. It has many profound scenes that make the characters--and audiences as well--think about the perspectives they have on their lives. The movie wasn't nearly as funny as I was led to believe it would be, but again, given the subject matter, I understand why it wasn't filled with constant humor. This is not the type of movie I would normally pick out, but it was very well made, and I would recommend watching it at least once.
The film focuses largely on themes of depression and attempted suicide. There are some sexual situations and dialogue but no nudity or anything graphic. There is one F word and a moderate amount of PG-13 swearing.
