And while it's a perfectly fine film- checks the boxes- a decent plot, good acting, it is, at best, mediocre in terms of everything else.
So here's why I think you shouldn't bother watching it. And if you haven't and do plan on, then SPOILER ALERT. Well, not here but I'm sure I'll ruin it somewhere along the way.
The other reason being that it is talked about waaaay more than it needs to be. To put it crudely, sexism and female oppression have been around forever and everyone's been dealing with the issue, trying to rectify it on an individual level- in a picking their battles, fending for themselves sort of way. What I'm trying to say, and this may come as a bit of a shock, is that the problem CAN be solved without being so over the top about it.
