Women is Losers (2021)



Critic Consensus: While it might have benefited from a subtler approach to its message, Women Is Losers is elevated by outstanding work from lead Lorenza Izzo.

Movie Info

In 1960's San Francisco, bright and talented catholic school girl Celina Guerrera (ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD's Lorenza Izzo) survives a difficult home life by following the rules. That is until an indiscretion creates a series of devastating consequences. As Celina faces the compounded obstacles of being young and alone, she sets out to rise above the oppression of poverty and invest in a future that sets new precedents for the time. Inspired by real women and the Janis Joplin song of the same title.

More often the direct addresses feel overly didactic, seeming to prioritize changing minds over telling a story.

A brisk and bright-toned tale of personal struggle amid political obstacles.

Feliciano uses creative ways to keep things from getting didactic, even staging a sassy little musical number in the Mission. It boasts a killer soundtrack too.

The straightforward narrative of Selina's path to self-sufficiency is ultimately too dutiful for sustained dramatic interest, but these raised-eyebrow asides show real sparkiness.

This is, after all, "a story about making do with what you've got," and both Feliciano and Celina make a lot out of their talents and passions.
