What I liked

I enjoyed the sense of humor throughout, the skilled acting with all of Kamakshi’s different aspects, the Rock Star letting it all hang out, the songs that were linked to each memory, and the celebration of humanity’s resilience.

What I didn't like

For me, the only part that might be tweaked is the scene about the intake nurse? at Kaiser who was not trauma informed. Not sure about the tweak—it felt a little harsh coreball for some reason.

My overall impression

Kamakshi is back. Let it all hang out as she invites us into her past, a past that most people can relate to in some way, where those who were supposed to have your back let you down or worse. She has a lot of courage. Several times, I was moved to tears, but even in the more serious moments, there were plenty of opportunities to laugh.
