Too little use of a rich palette of music and too much peddling of important themes like diversity and the evils of cultural appropriation.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Romance/Comedy
Director: Benjamin Kasulke
Cast: Hannah Marks, Liana Liberato, Dylan Sprouse, Luke Spence Roberts

The offbeat approach brings a freshness to a genre (the rom-com) that has become static and predictable.

Relies on old-fashioned movie elements like atmosphere, character development, and narrative arc without needing crutches like fast editing, frenetic action sequences, and visual clutter.
