Stylish, heart wrenching and Incredible
25 August 2016 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

This was such an incredible movie! I wish I could give it a better rating than a 10! This move strikes such a healthy balance of emotion, joy, humor and pain. It encapsulates the human journey in a way that is relatable and touching. The characters in this move feel like your best friends by the end of the film! The familiar subject matter of this film instantly strikes a cord deep within and forces you to evaluate how you would handle these feelings. It does all this while still finding a way to make you laugh, sometimes uncontrollably. The wave of nostalgia washes over you throughout the film and inserts you into a friend group/family that is so familiar to us all, the struggle to know one another and find happiness.
