Adult Life Skills covers familiar territory, but an endearingly quirky story -- and starring turn from Jodie Whittaker -- make this coming-of-age comedy well worth a watch.

Jodie Whittaker's performance humanizes the film's troubled protagonist better than the story.
This is one of those so-called British comedies that is not remotely clever or amusing, even in the rare moments when you can decipher what comes out of the mouths of actors who sound like they could be from Mars.
Sweet but less oddball than it thinks.
Whittaker is easily the best thing about the movie. When the script fails in its attempts to flesh out Anna's character, Whittaker comes to the rescue. She can be funny, profane, dour, and heartbreaking. Oh, and quirky.
By the time I had finished watching the aggressively whimsical British comedy "Adult Life Skills," my eyes had rolled so far back in my head I could barely focus.
"Adult Life Skills" is a relentlessly quirky British comedy-drama that demonstrates why more is not always more.
It's an impressive feature debut for Rachel Tunnard who has directed, written and edited this expansion of her award-nominated short film Emotional Fusebox, made with the same actors.
Quirky dramedy explores loss, family, moving forward.
Adult Life Skills is a wobbly but winsome film about pain and the friends who pull us through kicking and screaming.
Familiar for its focus on a young person finding their way and still mostly enjoyable though too quirky for its own good, Adult Life Skills is neither a hit nor a miss.
Adult Life Skills is a poignant examination of a young woman whose growth has been stunted by grief, carried by Jodie Whittaker's charming performance.
I would recommend Adult Life Skills to fans of Jodie Whitaker and Dr. Who, but there are undoubtedly other films about loss that is easier for you to connect emotionally.
