| Surprisingly nuanced; undeniably effective
I note the very large number of one star reviews of a film that has only played festivals - hmm, that's curious. What could that be about?

For the record (and I'm not the film's target audience) this is a rather sophisticated YA film, a mix of teen romance, female self-empowerment, and the politics of Black Lives Matter. Chewy subject matter - police violence, the unconscious racism of bien-pensant privileged whites, divisions within the black community - is treated quite interestingly. There are contrivances, but for all that, it's very well done and I suspect it will be a hit.
