Moxie

I am AWARE that I’m not the target audience for this but explain to me WHY this movie follows Vivian, one of the most annoying characters I’ve ever seen in a teen movie, instead of Lucy, a black girl who has more moxie than literally any other character as she navigates a new school where sexism is the norm and women are told to keep their heads down to avoid harassment?

I liked that Vivian was called out for her overt whiteness by the end, but it doesn’t change the fact that any of the side characters would have made a more interesting protagonist.

I wouldn’t be so harsh on this movie if it felt like it was intended for a younger audience, but it genuinely felt as though these adult writers were trying to relate to progressive high-schoolers. Two of the writers of After (2019) wrote this so...yeah.
