CGiii Comment

It's millennial Marmite...with rainbows and sprinkles, pixies and polyamory. The effect: Dizzying!

To fully appreciate this film, it really does depend on who you are...it's not one for the pre-millennial generation [or those with a stoic moral compass]...Daddy Issues is niche...for the kaleidoscopic, colour-rush kids who drift in and out of reality, assuming label-less labels and avoiding the two inevitables: Death & Taxes.

Yes...it's cute. Saccharine cute. Sickly. Then BAM...it ain't so cute anymore...it will [and should] make you feel - quite literally - sick to the stomach. Without giving too much away...it surrounds that toxic phenomenon...the 'Sugar Daddy' - an amoral practice [and practise] if ever there was one...here, it's A+ amoral. No amount of ribbons and rainbows can disguise the fact that a 'Sugar Daddy' is noxious. Here...it's A+ noxious.

This is where the film falls down...into the rabbit-hole and gets irreversibly lost. Amara Cash clings on...to the cuteness...just when that candy-coloured-coat was screaming out to be smashed to smithereens...revealing the two [unavoidable] inevitables: Death [of fidelity] & [metaphorical] Taxes.

A film that should have gone into the dark...leaving the rainbow-pixie behind...and ending with the emergence of a new woman...like the Phoenix, full of fire and strength.

The(ir) Blurb...

An intoxicating invitation into the lives of two young women, one a fearless charmer, the other a talented but shy artist. When the pair meets, their lips and their lives collide, and the chemistry is electric. Combining their skills to design a clothing line, the girls spend every waking moment together, until the unthinkable happens. This candy-colored glimpse into first love is not only gorgeously shot, but it’s also driven by slick editing and an empowering soundtrack, immersing the viewer — or voyeur — into a world laced with potent sexuality.
