If you mix themes from films on topics including teenage coming of age & fantasy worldviews, rebellion against cultural norms, arranged marriage pressures, social commentary, and secondary school friendships and drama, you have to do it well to nail it. As an aside, you also decide to make it funny.
That’s what Nida Manzoor does with Polite Society. I loved it, and GLOL’d several times. The undercover gym scene is fabulous. As are all the nods to other films and genres.
It’s a keeper. I’ll be back to see it again, and I’ll buy it on iTunes. Go see it.
