PONTI

ELLE (UK) - - Elle Play - BY SHARLENE TEO

An in­tense story of fe­male friend­ship set in Sin­ga­pore,

told by three women: op­pressed teenager Szu; her mother Amisa, a for­mer cult film ac­tress who now spends her days con­duct­ing fake seances; and Szu’s school friend Circe (the name is trend­ing). The story jumps be­tween decades and per­spec­tives: in 1970, Amisa is dis­cov­ered by a film pro­ducer; in 2003, Szu and Circe’s high­school life un­folds; and in 2020, so­cial me­dia con­sul­tant Circe, now es­tranged from Szu, is asked to work on a re­make of Amisa’s movie. An en­thralling de­pic­tion

of teenage years.
