This summer has felt like a particularly strong one for women in independent film. Now, Kathryn Hahn makes a wonderful (mostly) dramatic turn in Afternoon Delight, a film about a woman who attempts to bring meaning to her life by letting a stripper move in with her family.
Comedy is subjective, so there are bound to be haters for We're the Millers. But, speaking as someone who enjoys vulgar humor that is both mean and smart, I can tell you that I laughed a lot during this brisk, consistently funny movie.
Afternoon Delight's realistic portrayal of women's lives and its cast of women characters make it a refreshing change from most female-centric movies. First-time feature director Jill Soloway has created a film that is both hilarious and sad, and real but still fun.
