This movie is actually dreadful.
It's sprawling shallowness shows a desperation to be liked, yet my take away is that it sloppily reveals itself as a "we're just being quirky, accept we really really believe what we're spoon-feeding, yet let's put a few things here and there to try and win everyone over, while truly condescending to the viewer with consistently unbelievable human behavior (i.e.: terrible acting)" movie.
It will be hyped, probably artificially, and a lot of people will defend it because they believe in what it attempted, or that it tried to say important stuff. It's as bad as a bad sitcom's lowest episodes. An ultimately cookie cutter story put in a blender and trying so hard to check every social box to try to win everyone's love (while slyly hinting at blame or guilt if you disagree with the narratives). It comes off as simply juvenile filmmaking posing as supposed big ideas, but, oh, yeah, "we're just a sweet little comedy-drama though". A lead actress who wrote the script should be far better at delivering their lines and emotions believably, and the heavy-handed situations just fall flat again, and again, and again, until it finally ends.
Lemmings will call it brave, I'm sure.
