What an emotional movie..... 8/10
13 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: What an emotional movie which has something for everyone. It's extremely well written and the characters all put in emotional and very true to life performance. The storyline doesn't hold up right from the start, and the audience cant help feeling for all the 3 families, and teacher, who are going through there own personal problems. The connection to all of the 3 families and the teacher is Skunk, who was played well by Eloise Laurence. I know that this movie was done on a budget, but the movie is top class and its a shame that a lot of people will miss this film because it isn't a major blockbuster. great Movie!

Round-Up: If anyone reads my reviews, please rent this movie because you won't be disappointed. The director cleverly gives you the shock value right from the beginning and then he shows different situations from all of the 3 families points of view, which was put together extremely well. The other thing that surprised me was that it really isn't predictable and its one of those movies where it takes you some time to get out of that zone, once the film has finished. I'm glad that the director was able to get some quality actors to portray his view of the script because of the budget. A must watch!

I recommend this movie to people who like there emotional dramas about the relationship between 3 individual families. 8/10
