In A World… - Lake Bell (2/5)
While it’s always good to have some diversity in the writer/director column, and there are great performances aplenty, the writing ends up being kind of misogynistic, even in the case of the protagonist (at one point, after sleeping with ONE guy, she comes home and calls herself a “slutty whore”). There was also a wholly unnecessary B-story about her sister having an affair that took away from the “female-trying-to-break-into-male-dominated-business” thing that this movie was supposed to be about.
