If you can get past the young-white-people-problems core, you may enjoy this film.
I appreciated the cinematography. The use of color was careful and not overbearing. The lighting in depth was alluring. The moving compositions suited the musical choreography nicely.
And the final revisionist-flashback montage number was so incredibly well-crafted story-wise that I wasn’t sure if I was choked up more because of the trueness of the emotion of loving and needing someone from your past *in* your past (*not* your present), or because of the cleverness of its intertwinedness with the achronological device used to introduce the two characters in the first place.
