To me, I think Megan's mom is setting Megan up for failure (even if it's well-intentioned). All good parents want their kids to succeed but, in her mom's case, she is encouraging Megan to aspire for goals that's beyond her reach. When the show first started, Megan wanted to be a film producer, was an inspirational speaker, and sold online clothing on the side. Now Megan had added film director to the mix and wants to go to film school. Megan's mom needs to encourage just one goal that's achievable for her daughter. Anything more than that is doing a disservice to Megan.
This is off the subject but the angled close ups of the young people before commercials make them look like characters in a Kubrick film.
