Dances with Films 2016: Creedmoria, by Rita Cannon

2 Jun


Alicia Slimmer’s coming-of-age comedy Creedmoria was inspired by her actual experiences growing up in Queens in the 1980s and it definitely feels like a film based on someone’s memories, for better and for worse. It has an emotional urgency and a clever eye for detail that keeps its formulaic plot from dragging too much, but it also has a disjointed quality that starts out intriguing, but eventually hobbles its own attempt at a triumphant ending.
