Net­flix, Oc­to­ber 9.

Radha Blank’s di­rec­to­rial de­but, which she also wrote, pro­duced, and stars in, has a ti­tle that evokes Judd Apa­tow and the feel of a raw ’90s in­die dis­cov­ery. It’s about a strug­gling play­wright who takes up rap­ping on the cusp of 40, but the movie’s a lot more than a fish-out-of-wa­ter com­edy—it’s an ex­plo­ration of be­ing a Black cre­ator in a largely white the­ater world.
