Kids say: Not yet rated

A movie of unusual energy and spark, watching this comedy drama is like opening a window to a stolen moment in time: a monumental day in the coming-of-age of five teenage girls. Strong characters and natural acting from the relatively unknown faces gives Our Ladies a warm, likable feel, and the themes of friendship and acceptance elevate it above the rowdy, lewd, and often thoughtless behavior it exhibits. The constant drinking, swearing, and sex talk very much in keeping with the reality rather than thrown in for shock value. Stereotypes are touched upon throughout, but the characters are well-rounded enough to go some way toward fending them off.

The beauty of Our Ladies is this sense of pausing time, so a final sequence charting the future of the characters feels unnecessary and unnatural in a film that otherwise steers clear of easy answers and neat endings. Tomorrow is implied, and that's enough. Thankfully the rest of the movie has enough energy and impact to immortalize those ladies just as they were: in that city, in that moment, before life comes chasing at their heels.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
