Amy Poehler’s latest project is here. She directs Moxie, which hit Netflix on Wednesday, March 3. The coming of age film stars Hadley Robinson as Vivian, a seemingly shy 16-year-old, who is inspired by a new student and her mom’s rebellious past to finally stand up against the sexism in her high school, and unexpectedly sparks a movement. In addition to directing, Poehler also plays Vivian’s mother, and the movie also features Alycia Pascual-Peña, Lauren Tsai, and Josephine Langford.
Moxie has officially debuted on Netflix with a mid-week release, so let’s see what critics have to say about it.
