Dolly Wells’ Good Posture will grow on you. What starts as a disaffected-young-artist-in-Brooklyn indie that we’ve seen before becomes a sweet study of what trying to be happy looks like. A lot of the credit goes to the performer behind that disaffected young artist, Grace Van Patten, who carries a movie that relies on subtle signs of charm and caring.
Set in current day Brooklyn, “Good Posture” is the gentle comedy story of a lazy but charming and beautiful young woman who has got used to using men to make her life easier, but after finally pushing one man too far, is forced to discover that she can live a happier life by taking responsibility for herself and not rely on those around her as easy props.
Strong performances are lost in ‘Ten Thousand Saints,’ a scattered coming-of-age story about a boy in the 1980s.
