Polite Society Doesn’t Follow Coming-of-Age Conventions | Exclaim!

Polite Society

Polite Society hits the ground running, jumping and kicking in the first few minutes, and never lets up its pace or infectious, offbeat energy. It’s a mashup of genres and styles, ranging from a coming-of-age tale to a kung fu epic to an Ocean’s Eleven-style heist. Still, even with all this going on, director and writer Nida Manzoor never loses sight of the story about sisterly love and confronting change.
