Remember the jaw-dropping kick you got out of Everything Everywhere All At Once because 1) it was so good and 2) you’d never seen anything quite like it? You may find yourself feeling much the same when you see Polite Society, director Nida Manzoor’s (sometimes literally) kickass new film, “Blending a heightened sense of reality with martial-arts moves and heist movie tropes, Polite Society... is a joyful romp all its own”—Alissa Wilkinson, Vox. A merry mash-up of sisterly affection, parental disappointment and bold action, Polite Society follows martial artist-in-training Ria Khan, who believes she must save her older sister Lena from her impending marriage. After enlisting the help of her friends, Ria attempts to pull off the most ambitious of all wedding heists in the name of independence and sisterhood.
