What I liked

The details of Kelly’s quest for purpose are idiosyncratic to her life, but her journey contains themes to which we can all relate. She’s a strong speaker and engages the audience with humor and honesty in self-disclosure. Real life doesn’t follow the neat structure of a narrative, but I appreciated how her “ending” had a quality of both resolution and forward-looking aspiration.

What I didn't like

The path to the satisfying ending is sometimes a bit twisty and populated with detail. More mention of specific acting projects might have helped her newfound mission feel clearer and real.

My overall impression

A sympathetic personal account of a quest for meaning, presented with conviction and personality.
