Holler offers a considered coming-of-age story set in working-class Ohio. Writer-director Nicole Riegel’s film follows Ruth (Jessica Barden of Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World), a young woman who joins a dangerous scrap metal crew to pay for her education and the chance at a better life. Barden, as has come to be expected, makes the stoic character compelling. Cool colors with splashes of rust and lilac permeate the film, placing a sunset-like filter over the harsh winter setting. It acts as a bleak but beautiful background for Ruth’s life, which is also at odds. She is at once rooted in her community as a daughter to her drug-addicted mother Rhonda (Pamela Adlon), a sister to her older brother Blaze (Gus Halper), and a coworker at a factory in danger of closing, but she also seeks to leave those labels behind for something solely her own. Will she?
