Refreshingly real
20 February 2018 | by ponderthis-21666See all my reviews

One of the best LGBT movies of the year, Becks jumps right into the action with a montage of the titular Becks moving across the country to be with her girlfriend, only to walk in on her with another woman. Devastated and broke, she is forced to move back in with her Catholic mother in St. Louis. The pacing can be a bit messy at times, and it's not an uplifting story, but it's a heartfelt movie with some jaw-dropping performances, particularly from Lena Hall. The dialogue is realistically witty and the musical interludes are beautiful, reminiscent of Eddie Vedder's work on Into the Wild but woven into the story seamlessly. This is a movie that will resonate with anyone who's felt the pain of hitting rock bottom.
