There's a lot to appreciate about the inspiring coming-of-age drama "Margarita With a Straw" despite several seemingly avoidable flaws.

Director Bose handles the material with a light, elegant touch. It helps that the cast, especially the remarkable Koechlin who gives a bravura performance in both physical and emotional terms, can carry it all off.

Bose has to handle a difficult balancing act, to empathise with the difficulties Laila faces but also appreciate the effect they have on those that surround her; she pulls it off with dignity and some style.

Margarita is not your usual drink. It's bitter than what's served customarily yet soothes your innards once down the throat.

Open, frank, funny romantic dramedy about a young Indian woman living with cerebral palsy. A perfect antidote to the disability pity porn of Me Before You.

Audience Reviews for Margarita with a Straw

A beautiful film and a beautiful story about acceptance. The lead actress, Kalki Koechlin, was brilliant as a girl with cerebral palsy seeking her place in the world. I truly believed she was afflicted with the condition. Her performance was impeccable. And her smile was radiant. I fell in love with her character. Be prepared for an emotional ride.
