Someone Great ★★

Thoroughly unconvincing - the idealized lighting in the flashback scenes with Lakeith Stanfield, the Rolling Stone job across the country, really all of it. The conception of the friendship is a strong one, but only a few moments are really funny and, frankly, moving. The first is the visit to the rich kid played by Jaboukie Young-White, ratcheting up the absurdity. The second is the Selena song in the bodega - now that's real. The rest plays as you'd expect it with each character getting their own moments, most of them unconvincing.
