I most liked the parts where workers or clients talked about the overlap between human needs and intersectional issues (homophobia, racism, sexism, ableism), but I was also pleasantly surprised by the scene where the cuddler is teaching a client boundaries and how to decline something politely. That's the kind of work which would be perfectly at home in a traditional therapy setting.

Though I liked the movie in general, I was glad that it didn't try to spin this out into a two-hour feature. 45 minutes seemed the right length for the story and the interview subjects they had.
