"Daisy Bea (Jency Griffin Hogan) spends her days as a high school librarian, stuck in a rut in both her personal and professional life. As her 40th birthday draws near, she starts to feel pressured to settle down and start a family. When the art teacher at Daisy's school abruptly quits mid-term, Daisy takes it upon herself to give West High School students the art program that they deserve. Through her adopted profession, she begins to question the true meaning of parenthood. Daisy, however, doesn't fancy herself much of an artist. When she meets the local photographer Jack Palmer (Bryan Langlitz) at an exhibition, she ropes him into her plan and begins to see a new future for herself." 


From a personal perspective of a thirty-something, I found Days of Daisy relatable, unsure of where my life should be heading. There are certain ideas ingrained in our society that infuse marriage and having children as requirements for happiness, this ideal is personified through our main character Daisy. Daisy invests much of her time and worry in finding a partner and having children, seeing this as the only viable path to find  her happiness. Over the course of the movie, she shifts this perspective and her worldview opens up with new possibilities. 


Despite relating to a few of the characters, the movie struggled to maintain my interest with a bare-bones plot that lacked originality. Cliché, shallow characters like the ‘goofy’ best friend and noncommittal boyfriend drag down the movie and provide no added value. 


The performances are mixed across the landscape of Days of Daisy. There are some charming instances with believable emotion on display; however, this is sadly overshadowed by an abundance of scenes that seem forced. These towering issues are accompanied by awkwardly delivered dialogue that creates a distraction that ultimately fends off any opportunities to tug at the heart strings of the viewer, which the movie is clearly vying for. While the premise of Days of Daisy had potential, it failed to inspire me to care about the characters’ journeys and where they all ended up.
