Adult Life Skills is the kind of movie that I see two to three times a month. Usually foreign indie fare about adults acting like children and the others adults that deal with them. There is an actor or two related to a beloved nerd property and this is their opportunity to stretch. All the while, it seems like you’ve seen the movie before. This time it’s about a Manic Pixie Dream Girl’s inability to get off the spectrum and over the death of her twin brother.
She’s cute, lives in a garden shed and wants to improve the life of a little boy near her home. If that wasn’t enough, a local real estate agent is trying to seduce her. There is a ton of tears, understanding and British slang in a short amount of time. These movies have an audience, I’m just not part of it. Take that for what you will.
