This movie has gotten some good press and a nomination for Best Picture (I think).
I didn’t hate it but I certainly didn’t like it either. First, a poor student from a poor family getting accepted into Columbia based solely on a well-written essay is patently absurd.
More than that however, I intensely disliked the incredibly self-centered, egotistical main character. She wouldn’t get admitted to community college if it were up to me.
It seems to be that many young people these days are like this character. Too bad.
