Platform Prize, 2021 Toronto International Film Festival
Yuni’s a typical high school student: chilling with friends, rocking the latest looks (especially in her signature purple), scoping out boys she likes and boys who like her. Her magnetism is noticed in other circles too. Yuni starts receiving marriage proposals through her parents, and her carefree teenage days seem to be numbered—unless she does something about it. Kamila Andini’s latest exploration of Indonesian youth is a lyrical and colorful coming-of-age tale, featuring a star-making performance by Arawinda Kirana.
