Movie Info

Set in current day Brooklyn, Good Posture is the story of Lilian (Grace Van Patten) a lazy but charming and beautiful young woman who, having broken up with her boyfriend has been placed into the care of family friend and famed reclusive author, Julia Price (Emily Mortimer). To impress her ex-boyfriend, and the other cynics around her, Lilian suddenly decides to make a documentary on Julia - albeit an unauthorized one - with surprisingly amusing results.

  • As it happens, nothing much happens. Wells's film, basically, is missing a middle act. Still, if you're willing to overlook that teeny-tiny flaw, you'll emerge feeling stoked.

  • Yes, it's another tale of agonised yet essentially comfortable creatives living in nice houses, but one that's elevated by canny writing and layered performances.

  • Wells's coolly indirect way with dialogue prevents the movie becoming insufferable in the way that it might have done in other hands. It is like a short story that insouciantly signs off before you've quite decided what it means.

  • All in all, there are moments of beauty in Dolly Wells' poetic and promising debut, but she still feels like a director finding her feet.

  • While not designed to be an earth-shaking debut, "Good Posture" is more than enjoyable enough to suggest that Wells is no slouch.

  • There is an upright backbone somewhere in "Good Posture" that holds it all together, while a once-hopeless woman-child grows in Brooklyn against the odds.
