LJ'S QUICK MOVIE REVIEW

"As You Are" is a touching movie that explores the themes of belonging, friendship, love, anger, and envy in a heartwarming way. As the three main characters advance through their lives and face various challenges in their community, they face moments of self-doubt, self-discovery, and emotional conflict.

The three characters, two boys and one girl, form a close-knit trio. However, love, relationships, and family threaten to disarrange their lives forever. The simple, but well-written script, and great performances turn this basic premise into an emotional tale of three people trying to find their way in life together.

Overall, I truly enjoyed watching this movie. Although it can be melodramatic at times, its simple message resonates throughout the great acting, directing, and score. The movie's well-developed characters, unique plot, and emotional undertones makes it an engaging piece.
