A poignant exploration of loss and the transformative journey toward self-love and acceptance.
4/5

Review

Juliana Custer’s heartfelt coming-of-age drama unveils the emotional landscape of post-breakup recovery as Amy Lichtenstein delivers a compelling performance as Valentina, a young Hispanic American grappling with heartbreak after her separation from Wes, portrayed by Robert McFarlane. The narrative beautifully navigates Valentina’s journey through despair, loss, and isolation, ultimately leading to a poignant exploration of self-love and renewed identity.

Supported by a strong ensemble cast including Nathaniel Owens and Hayley Dove as Valentina’s lifelong friends, and Carmen Lichtenstein as her empathetic mother, the film weaves a tapestry of relationships that mirrors the multifaceted process of grief. Each character contributes to the narrative’s depth, offering layers of emotion and connection.

Angelica Santos Perez’s cinematography is a standout, providing well-crafted and cinematic visuals that enhance the storytelling experience. The film resonates with authenticity, capturing the universal struggle of overcoming heartbreak and the subsequent journey towards acceptance and resilience. It serves as a beacon of hope for a teenage audience, delivering a poignant and relatable tale of self-discovery and growth, ultimately leaving viewers with a sense of optimism and empowerment.
