The Best Part of The Half of It

Netflix’s original film The Half of It, written, directed, and co-produced by Alice Wu, won the Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. I don’t want to too quickly dismiss that accolade, but honestly, that’s not the best part of this film and its endeavors.




The Junction is a digital crossroads devoted to stories, culture, and ideas. Our interests are legion.
