Critic Reviews for How to Build a Girl
Giedroyc has a real sense for the oversized emotions of adolescence - to the point that she often channels it literally into a sort of kooky magical realism.
The movie doesn't sympathize with anyone, really. Nick Lowe famously sang that you have to be cruel to be kind. "How to Build" is mostly just cruel.
There's some valuable wisdom in there... But these grounded morals are smuggled into a storyline that's so completely divorced from reality that the end result is more confusing than inspiring.
Beanie Feldstein's charming performance forms the solid base of "How to Build a Girl," a coming-of-age comedy that follows familiar beats but has a winning disposition.
It's charming and sweet, and even in its more serious moments, the movie never loses its sense of humor.
