Has anyone else seen this yet? I saw it Friday afternoon. I thought that it was really funny and moving.

I saw it last week and really enjoyed it. I have to admit, I was kind of expecting to like it a little more, but it was still quite good.

It ended really abruptly. I would've liked a nicer close to the narrative. I don't think ending it there does anything for the theme at all, either.

I thought it was "okay" at best. Kinda boring and slow at worst.

I loved the grandma, but I feel like the autobiographical tone didn't really work for it. Marjane just wasn't a compelling protagonist.
