I finally got around to seeing newcomer Dir. Gia Coppola’s debut film, which I had been following the development of since last year. Needless to say from the bts footage to the family name she dons from, I was quite excited for this film. After watching the film though I was left a little depressed and unfulfilled, throughout the entire run time of the film it sets up these very melodramatic characters & events that are just so un-relatable. The ending of the film is what really threw me off, so many things just left unanswered and leaves you feeling that the experience was incomplete. The film’s cinematography however is beautiful and dreamy, Gia was definitely taking some tips from her aunt. Overall its a great effort for a first film personally.
