ReelViews for 'Drama/Comedy' movies
Part romantic-comedy and part coming-of-age story, this is an upbeat, uplifting, and teen-friendly crowd-pleaser.
Rossy de Palma is great but she’s not in enough scenes to salvage a movie that lacks substance and focus.
Affecting without being overly sentimental, humorous without being inappropriately comedic, and quirky without being self-indulgent.
If the most important thing in any coming-of-age story is for the main character to evolve, "Measure of a Man" gets it right.
Functions more as a diversion than a fully satisfying motion picture, although, for something streaming on Netflix, a “diversion” is usually good enough.
