Jessica Nigri is an internationally renowned cosplayer, racking up millions of social media followers and the number one Patreon page in cosplay. Directed by Mat Hames, Becoming Jessica Nigri explores Nigri’s life, from a magical childhood growing up with quirky parents in New Zealand, to entering middle school in the U.S. where she was mercilessly teased for her “nerdy” interests. Through cosplay, Nigri learned that becoming someone else gives her the courage to be herself.

What's the future of Pay-Per-View films on your TV? Who has found out. Can it replace movie theaters? I am able to see somewhat see the daytime being able to pay for a brand new video right from your TV and never have to leave the comfort of your home to go to the movie theatre. Everyone is busy in their employment opportunities and their lives and only receiving busier. Think of the convenience to be able to watch a brand new video at the theater in your home. Oh yea the possibilities.

★★★★ Yet another solid doc from Rooster Teeth. I never fully understood the more personal side of Nigri's life as well as the extent of the work she does, but through this documentary I was able to have a better understanding of both.
