Timbo of Boston's rating of the film The Exploding Girl

Despite being another small budget 'young in Brooklyn' woman's story and not my generation, I was riveted. (This came out the year before Lena Dunham's debut) Its patient style allows the audience to live in the moment and the emotions of become universal and very moving. Zoe Kazan is a wonderful looking actress who knows how to underplay. I was enraptured by her performance. The last shot teased out a tear or two.
