Marielle Heller makes a sweet coming-of-age tale of Phoebe Gloeckner’s classic graphic novel, but does not capture the fierce, unsentimental wisdom of the original. Despite standout performances by Bel Powley and Kristen Wiig, the script fails to convey the gritty texture of being a young girl down and out in 1970s San Francisco.
