NOSELL

M. Night, bro, what the hell?

NOSELL

“The Diary of a Teenage Girl” isn’t kind to its viewers. It says everything we don’t want to hear and does everything we don’t want to do.

But when the lights come up and the energy dies down, you leave the safety of the theater; it’s the real world now, a world with its own monsters and unexplained phenomena. And sometimes you feel like you’re being watched, sometimes you feel like you’re being followed. “It’s just a movie,” you tell yourself, so why do you feel so disturbed?

NOSELL

Based on David Lipsky’s memoir, “Although of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself,” this tale of two Davids, like both men, is full of beautiful contradictions.
