Wry and at times funny, writer/director Mirrah Foulkes’ big screen debut has a lot on its plate as it takes on gender politics, societal norms, government corruption and the danger of mob rule and group think. Though there are plenty of issues on hand, the film manages to sag in the middle as the pace of the second act nearly grinds things to a halt. This is a movie of moments, as they are inspired scenes throughout, especially during the last 15 minutes. A good effort that would have benefited from a judicious bit of editing.
