Unfortunately I didn’t like a thing about this film — and maybe that was the point... Which is all the more upsetting the more I think about it. I found nothing charming about Cassie or the absurdity of the story overall. UGH, I’ve fallen into Emerald’s trap!
This film didn’t tug at my heartstrings like I hoped it would — everything about it felt contrived and too on the nose. The setting, the lackluster love story, the “quirky” shots (i.e. the field scene), the melodramatic dialogue sure to be quoted all over the internet… It was too much all at once. I think I could have loved this as a short film instead?? This was beautifully done and I love a good queer film, just didn’t understand all the hype for this one. Perhaps this deserves another watch.
