| A sublime surprise
"Seventh Grade" is one of the best and most surprising coming of age stories to be produced lately, one that looks authentic, charming and filled with qualities despite its reduced running time (with creativity the director might find ideas to turn this into a successful feature film).

This short and sweet story deals with girls transition from playing dolls to dealing with more serious matters, which includes boys. Patrice (Maxine Turenne) stills clings to childhood and her toys, it's important to her though it's also a way for her to be curious about things that occupy pre-adolescent minds. The definitive turning point comes to her when her best friend Laura (Mia Guzman) is target of a mean rumor at school, and now Patrice wants to save her friend's reputation at the same time she's trying to understand the difficult process of growing up, which includes leave some innocence behind.

I can only advise you to watch this right away, won't tell what happens but I can honestly say that the solution to the problem really blew my mind away. I didn't see that coming. And besides the fascinating story, the cast is formed by great (yet unknown) talents, actors we look forward to see more and more in the future - the leading girl was amazing. 10/10
