A good movie.
15 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was a very good movie. I was happy to see Butler out of his macho Camacho character and give a simple and well played performance. The story line was engaging and a reflection on life. The kid's acting was spot on and actually very engaging. I gave it an 8. It's not an award winning movie, but a good story.
