Mr. Roosevelt Reviews

September 25, 2018
Wells limns an authentic portrait of a rapidly gentrifying city, down to the thirtysomething cohorts of loafers and tech yuppies who vie for the same turf.

Wells is a talent as a storyteller and as a director with a nice visual touch, and as a screen presence. Emily is wonderful. We like spending time with them. (Noel and Emily, I mean.)

After brief stints on "SNL" and "Master of None," NoŽl Wells has found her true calling - as a filmmaker.

Mr. Roosevelt may be slight, but it's buoyed by Wells's self-deprecating humor.

The premise of Mr. Roosevelt is pretty slight, but it's filled with funny performances and biting snippets of social commentary.

Wells doesn't just focus on her laugh-out-loud funny performance or insightful script: she displays a real eye for the cinematic with shot-on-film visuals that elevate her movie and lavish attention on its Texas setting.

It's a reminder that the 21st century is going to be full of coming-of-age films about 30-year-olds, and it's compelling evidence that that might be alright.

Modest but funny, it makes a fine calling card for a performer deserving of bigger things.

Nothing here, from the premise to the plotting to the basic tone, is particularly novel, but the entire affair has a distinctive personality.
