Critic Reviews for Margarita with a Straw
It's funny, touching, visually rich, and only slightly too syrupy toward the end.
It's too simplistic to say that I found it offensive because of the nondisabled cast, but it's also true that I am reluctant to praise the things it does well because of this singular inescapable problem.
There's a lot to appreciate about the inspiring coming-of-age drama "Margarita With a Straw" despite several seemingly avoidable flaws.
Moments stand out, especially between mom-daughter, Revathi and Kalki, both putting up perceptive, persuasive performances.
In Margarita with a Straw, writer-director Shonali Bose and actor Kalki Koechlin give us a woman we have never seen in our cinema before.
The film falters in bits, especially in the second half... But nothing takes away from the beating heart of the film, which gives us a girl to root for, and a subject that needs to be out there, in the public domain.
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.
