Review by David Bruce
Way back in 100 BC Publilius Syrus said, “It takes a long time to bring excellence to maturity.” It was true then and it is still true. And yet at the same time your age is no guarantee of maturity. Our heroes in the film Role Models are young adults needing to be just that ―young adult. The film points to the idea that “growing up” happens in relationship. Additionally, it points to play as an essential part of this journey to emotional maturity. It has always amazed me how comedy films can have so much truth in them.
Time + Relationship + Play = Maturity. Not bad, I like it.
