Dispiriting, though well-acted.

Eva Löbau is awkward and pathetic but always believable. It is incredible that Maren Ade was able to execute a film of this caliber as ...Read more

Sometimes painful to watch this... someone trying to come into their own power. She's got a long way to go. A movie about growing pains and growing up. Weak ending; didn't really get it...
