Richard's first beer is draft perfect, then the bartender holds a bad beer in his hands. In the next shot, it is perfect again. The next shot shows the bad beer again, and then it even dies completely (and there's less beer) in Richard hands, only to be perfect again when he takes his first sip. See more »
2 very different people find a connection that helps them heal within and move on from what was stopping them in the past.
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by how great this movie was. I did not expect it to be so heart whelming.
The acting from both Emma Stone and Jeff Daniels was incredible, they brought their characters to life and their chemistry was endearing.
The storyline was beautifully displayed, very interesting and definitely NOT boring.
You get to see how two very different yet very similar people develop a friendship that not many would understand. Not only does it show them growing more into their character but it also shows them growing together as almost one.
All in all,great movie! Definitely would recommend!
