loved the originality behind this and how much it relates to daily events today
The movie was well written, great acting and casting .
Somehow, the blistering comedy you would expect never quite manifests, and instead we get a lot of on-the-nose sermonizing and weak-tea social commentary.
The film’s second act is near spot-on comedy of discomfort.
A little more subtlety and a more nuanced approach to the dynamics of this culture clash would have made the film that little bit more effective.
