In the past month or so, I’ve seen several outstanding movies and TV series that are written by or directed by women and that star women in roles where they either hold or take the power. I know I’m forgetting some or haven’t seen everything, so feel free to suggest more in the comments.
Hearts Beat Loud appears to be a simple story about a father and daughter as she prepares to leave for college. It seems simple, but it’s actually emotionally intricate and complex. Like some of the music in this film, it’s complicated while seeming simple. It’s perfectly written and acted. It’s a wonderful movie. I give it all the stars.
