Reviewing for Los Angeles Times, Kevin Crust wrote, “Ultimately, ‘The Half of It’ and its multilayered title are about the expansiveness of love, with the romantic kind being just one among equals. It’s about friendship and family, the acceptance of self and others, and the freedom to be who you are and screw up royally along the way. … Wu is confident enough to make the bold strokes her characters speak of and craft a movie that’s comfortably different. Almost 16 years after ‘Saving Face’ made her a voice to reckon with, Wu is back and we’re happy to have her.”
Alice Wu returns with Netflix's 'The Half of It,' a charming manifesto on love that mines both high school romances and classic movies.
