Citizen Ruth ★★★★

Payne is a director that isn't mentioned as nearly often as his strong body of work should imply. His feature debut is as ballsy as it goes. Approaching a really touchy subject with equal lightness and respect for the matter is incredibly tough, but he somehow makes it look easy. There's an instantly noticeable heavy dose of exaggeration here, but it works fine because it's mainly intended to cause comedic moments and sheer away doing a heavier statement on the issue of abortion, even though the film clearly has a side.
