An engaging and harrowingly topical drama.
"Lemonade" remains effective and agitating precisely where it needs to be, while the subtleties of Manovici's performance, clouding her ingenue-like appearance with flashes of hard-lived savvy, keep the drama on edge.
The acting is solid all around, with Manovici offering a dazzlingly nuanced performance mingling innocence, charisma and deer-in-the-headlights desperation.
Ioana Uricaru's Lemonade finds some of the Romanian spirit lost in translation, but makes for a striking first feature centered on the desperation of the immigrant experience.
Perhaps the most ingenious thing about Lemonade is the bittersweetness that defines it - and the relationship that [director Ioana] Uricaru establishes with the title. [Full review in Spanish]
Uricaru's powerful film is one that should be seen by all, showcasing the idea that, though America is not quite the shining beacon that it once was, if there are still those that look out for each other, perhaps there is but a glimmer of hope.
This is not a film for the faint of heart, but the issues it presents can not go unnoticed.
Uricaru's over-egged and dramatically misfiring debut feature stretches credibility, and patience with its characters, to such a degree as to largely undo its potential.
