Everything Sucks!, Netflix’s new teenage coming-of-age dramady has its own growing pains that it goes through in its first season, but that shouldn’t stop you from devouring it immediately. The overarching plot isn’t my favorite, but the subtle parts are better than the sum. It all starts with Kate’s sexual awakening.
After describing the plot to Lady Bird to a coworker and declaring it the best film I’ve seen this year, she asked me: “Why?” Why. The short answer: it’s the type of film that I would want to write for the world.
