Sasha Levinson films her second grade daughter, Sylvie, during the intial covid lockdown. We watch as mother and daughter navigate school, work, a fragmented family, an emergency and a wired existence
I am uncertain how to review this film. In many ways I'm way too close to this film to try to be objective. I say that because Sylvie reminds me very much like my niece. As a result watching the film I had the feeling that this was like spending time with my niece when she was that age.
I suppose that is a rave of sorts since Levinson has made a film that is very much like life.
The problem for me at least is I don't know if I need to be watching a film that mirrors when I can go and see my niece and get a hg in the process.
That said this is a really good film about a mother and daughter and if you would like to see what it is like to be a single mom in the age of covid this film is very recommended
