Lovely Ladies (Movie Thoughts: Our Ladies)

‘Our Ladies’ came out during lockdown but apparently it was still a hit, so it must be good, right? It is getting raves at Letterboxd so I was looking forward to enjoying it. But I felt it was a little bit off in tone. It seems…. dated is the first word that comes to mind. Sure, I know that it is set in the 90s but the ideas should feel timeless. This story of four randy Catholic girls feels false, probably because it seems to be taken from the point of view of a male gaze. Maybe that’s also the reason why I did not enjoy it as much as I would have?
