Excerpt: [Bujalski’s] latest features one of his largest ensembles with a career best performance from Regina Hall and Haley Lu Richardson doing a complete about face from last year’s “Columbus” in a movie that explores how much of our identiities is defined by the work we do.
Excerpt: Support The Girls is a simple slice of life comedy on the surface, but underneath all the workplace tangents is layers of commentary about being a woman working a thankless, low paying job that leaves them at the mercy of entitled men. However, it avoids cheap impulses, keeping its messaging understated and coming from a place of empathy and compassion.
Excerpt: Andrew Bujalski pokes at a unique slice of Americana – the breastaurant. Showing real girls with real problems and a real humanity, the film screws comedic holes into the modern American value of young girls paid to flaunt, flirt, and flatter.
Excerpt: Support the Girls works well, not just because of Hall who helps bring dignity to what could very well be a very degrading world and job, but also because of the humor and heart sprinkled throughout the narrative.
