Shonali Bose’s Margarita with a Straw (2014) is a moving coming-of-age film. Its journey of discovery and self-love is tender and emotionally fulfilling. It also wrestles with important issues such as disability, inclusion, and sexuality. Unfortunately, its plot feels confused and convoluted at points, its second half lacking in a clear progression of story and satisfying conclusion. It’s also important to point out that, though the film is about disabled characters and therefore depicts an underrepresented community, the actors who play the disabled characters are non-disabled actors. As a whole though, the film is very sweet to watch. Read my full review here: https://www.incluvie.com/articles/margarita-with-a-straw-2014-movie-review
