This is a description of the film Paper Town in a film critique.
"Despite likeable performances by the young cast and some resonant moments, this gauzy teen drama is, sadly, paper-thin."
I've looked up a couple of dictionaries and still cannot find out the figurative meaning of this word "gauzy". The dictionaries' definitions are more or less the same which point to "made from a type of light transparent cloth that is usually made of cotton or silk" or "having the qualities of gauze; light, thin, transparent, hazy".
When "gauzy" is used to modify a film, drama, or a piece of artwork, what does it really mean? My guess, for now, is something like "superficial" or "empty". Please give me a clear and unambiguous definition. Thanks in advance.
