Good Posture Rated 15

Good Posture

Dir. Dolly Wells. USA, 2019. 1h 32m. Starring Emily Mortimer, Nat Wolff, Norbert Leo Butz, Grace Van Patten, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Condola Rashad.

Set in modern-day Brooklyn, a once-hopeless young woman gives up using romantic relationships as a crutch discovering that she can live a better life by taking responsibility for herself. Dolly Wells’ endearing debut is a sharply observed coming-of-adulthood tale delivered with candid wit and genuine emotion. 

'Elegant, lo-fi indie comedy, a tale of self-doubting but privileged cultured/artistic twentysomethings in Brooklyn, which unrolls in the manner of Noah Baumbach or Lena Dunham.' ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Featuring flawed, but fascinating characters, “Good Posture” is as smart and creative as these three-dimensional people, and charming and genuine to boot.’ ★★★★ Kimber Myers, The Playlist
