★★★½ review by Abby on Letterboxd
Aware that someone is bound to get the wrong impression about her murderous protagonist, Leite is quick to point out the double standard when it comes to characters on film: “Men do bad things on film all the time, and people love them. Why should women have to limit what they make films about?” Beyond having the same freedom of subject manner as male filmmakers, Leite hopes that M.F.A. will offer a kind of catharsis for people who have experienced sexual assault while also creating a platform to think about and discuss the realities of sexual violence.
