Movie Info

Eleven-year-old Amy lives with her mom, Mariam, and younger brother, awaiting her father to rejoin the family from Senegal. Amy is fascinated by disobedient neighbor Angelica's free-spirited dance clique named "Cuties", a group that stands in sharp contrast to stoic Mariam's deeply held traditional values. Undeterred by the girls' initial brutal dismissal and eager to escape her family's simmering dysfunction, Amy, through an ignited awareness of her burgeoning femininity, propels the group to enthusiastically embrace an increasingly sensual dance routine, sparking the girls' hope to twerk their way to stardom at a local dance contest.

The elements are put in place... But Doucouré doesn't quite thread those strands into a satisfying conclusion.

Growing up is hard enough, and "Cuties" knows that - until it doesn't.

January 23, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

There's a few too many fake-outs to invest in the film's stakes, even as Amy's antics get increasingly egregious.

January 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Assesses the transition from childhood to adolescence by pointing its lens at an 11-year-old girl at the crossroads of tradition and personal discovery. It's the type of first feature that heralds an indelible directorial voice.

January 23, 2020 | Full Review…

Earnest performances from the assemble cast and Doucouré's deliberately voyeuristic direction showcases the perils and plights of coming of age in the digital era.

April 24, 2020 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

At least the film doesn't pretend that any of the various cultures Amy is struggling to navigate will ever do right by her, although it does offer another way between extremes, where perhaps true freedom can be found.
