New from A Reel of One’s Own by Andrea Thompson: How to Build a Girl Review: Beanie Feldstein Gets to Write Her Way out in a Familiar Coming-Of-Age Story

By Andrea Thompson

You wanted Beanie Feldstein front and center? Well, if you’ve been watching movies for the past few years, you have. And now is your chance to thank the movie gods, because she very much is in How to Build a Girl, and it is glorious. It doesn’t come easy though. Johanna Morrigan may take a less familiar path to coming of age than most teens, but How to Build a Girl captures the emotional roller coaster of impending adulthood in all its exhilarating highs and cringeworthy, at times devastating, lows.
