This story about a brave woman who goes against the tide to stand up for herself is an inspiring example of what can happen when the marginalized speak up. It helps that the story is engaging, and the characters well played. There's an interesting encounter between Nina and Marco's daughter that highlights how the actions of predators like Marco impact a broader circle. Catholic clergy play a role in covering up the harassment, which makes a strong statement about the church.

Several small plot points aren't quite fleshed out enough and are confusing as a result. And although the plot at first moves along at a slow but steady pace, a huge jump toward the end feels disorienting. The finale feels victorious except for one disappointing scene, which makes harassment feel inevitable and may ruin the sense of hope for some. But overall, Nome di donna does a decent job of tackling a complex -- and currently hot-button -- topic and is bound to start some interesting discussions between older teens and parents.
