Amy Poehler’s latest project is here. She directs Moxie, which hit Netflix on Wednesday, March 3. The coming-of-age movie stars Hadley Robinson as Vivian, a seemingly shy 16-year-old, who takes inspiration from a new student and her mother’s rebellious past to finally confront her high school sexism, and unexpectedly triggers a movement. In addition to directing, Poehler also plays Vivian’s mother, and the film 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 the critics have to say about it.
