Not Okay on Hulu
Genre: Comedy, Drama
A misguided young woman desperate for friends and fame fakes a trip to Paris to update her social media presence. A terrifying incident occurs in the real world, becoming part of the imaginary trip and offering all she wants.
Zoey Deutch, Dylan O’Brien, Mia Isaac, Embeth Davidtz, and Nadia Alexander
Not Okay is a satirical comedy-drama that follows 25-year-old Dani, an aspiring influencer who only sees things from the myopic lens of her own privilege. We watch as Dani’s disillusion leads her to lie her way to fame and wait for everything to blow up in her face.
The storytelling was amazing, and the pacing was just right. There was never a dull moment, and I was invested the entire time. There were so many great things about this movie, but the performances of the two lead actresses were the best part.
Mia Isaac’s performance nearly brought me to tears. She put her all into this performance, and it showed. Everything about her character is so heartbreakingly beautiful and incredibly real and raw. The writing of Rowan was amazing on its own, and Mia’s performance made it so much better.
Zoey Deutch did an amazing job of making you both despise and empathize with her character. You know that what Dani has done is horrible and inexcusable. And yet you can help but feel for her. Dani’s constant loneliness has pushed her to lie about something as big as this. It does not justify her actions but helps you understand why she did what she did.
It was a thought-provoking movie that I will be thinking about for the foreseeable future.
I give Not Okay on Hulu 5 out of 5 stars.
