My Review of "Anything's Possible"

A whole new generation of different problems. Here's a different coming of age story.

Anything's Possible is a new Amazon Prime original film. There are lots of complexities to this movie that they try to tackle. Thankfully it's a fairly simple story so it's a pretty easy to follow. People of my generation might be startled at such a new age of youth. It's pretty interesting to see how they're portrayed in this movie.

It all starts out with an introduction to our main protagonist Kelsa. She loves animals and seems to be living a relatively normal life in high school. That's also somewhat surprising to me as she's a trans girl. I would have thought she would be going through a lot more issues but those don't arise until the main catalyst to the story happens.

That catalyst comes in with her love interest Khal. He's infatuated by her in general but has a best friend that isn't as liberal in his thoughts. When he finally comes out to show his affections for her all hell breaks loose in the high school social dynamics.

Friends start to vacate due to lack of acceptance and anger at the whole situation. With bitter teenagers comes raging reactions. Each of the reactions will kind of domino from one situation to another.

Most of this is all pretty tame though. There's a weird fluctuation in tone throughout the movie. I found that despite the conflict with each of the students they are for the most part quite civil with one another. That was startling to see. I've been in high school before and things aren't so easily remedied or as nice.

It's really good to know that this newer generation has a lot more empathy than the generations in the past. There's a sense of maturity to these kids that was kind of mind boggling to me and I really hope that's true in real life. If things really are this way I have a really good hope for the future.

Cinematically this movie is very colorful. They have all of the students at this school extremely fashion forward with outrageous outfits. It's very apparent that art and fashion are a big thing in this movie. This was why I found it funny that Khal is the only character that seemed to be wearing the same clothes in most of the scenes.

Some people may also be put off at some of the new generation jargon. For the first few minutes I was trying to figure out what they were talking about. Thankfully it doesn't take long to get accustomed to common phrases they're using. In some ways it kind of feels like walking into a different culture altogether.

I also liked where this movie goes. It definitely is a coming of age story but as I mentioned earlier there's a sense of maturity to the characters. At times this maturity feels a little too artificial. These kids can't possibly be just okay with such huge changes in their lives.

The entertainment factor really comes in with the characters of the movie though. The whole cast did a great job in breathing life into their characters. Each one of them are quite charismatic and affable.

Overall, it all comes down to whether I had a good time watching this movie. I can say yes it was entertaining but a little generic at times. The visuals and the charisma of the cast help add a special punch to the movie but ultimately I probably won't be revisiting this movie again. I have to give this movie a 6.5 out of 10. I like the new perspectives from this movie and I hope that more movies like this come out in the future.
