Best Friends in the World is filled with simple, honest and well thought out lessons. It navigates the complex, yet simple mind of the young adult. For an indie production, it doesn’t attempt to wear itself too thin— it stays true to itself. The result is a story that’ll keep you entertained, scenes that aren’t belaboured and literal “moral lessons”.
The story uses the mind of a growing child to explore front burner issues like gender roles, traditional relationships, sex, gender based violence and more. It’s a great watch and a startling reminder that indie creators deserve increased funding.
One thing you may want to watch out for is the slow buildup. The impressiveness of the show doesn’t quite kick in immediately. However, as the first season wraps up, you’ll join the family of fans as we count down to the next season.
