Following in excitement the struggles of Elena Greco, a young smart girl, who after the mysterious disappearance of her best friend, Lila, her life turns upside down. In this new season, Lila returns to work at a grocery shop.
Again and again this season, characters' inner lives are beautifully conveyed without words... It's a testament to the show's feat of world-building, and the masterful efforts of its actors, that this wordless broadcasting of emotion completely clicks.
Immersive, addictive even-particularly in its second season, which seems to understand better than the first that the show can be heavy and dark while still being hopeful, suspenseful, and, dare I say it, occasionally fun.
An unusually thoughtful, perceptive series, taking the interiority of teenage girls and women seriously while immersing its audience in a specific culture that, nonetheless, feels all too painfully familiar.
