In an attempt to give away as little as possible about this film, obviously so that you can enjoy all of the phases as I was able to do, I would like to simply highlight my opinion about this movie. It was a great film and was very entertaining. I'd recommend you take a chance and go see this film. Expect some theatrical diversity and in the end it all comes back full circle.
I have nothing negative to say. The acting was mature and accurate. Each character was playing a role that suited their own set of talents superbly.
Try not to read too many reviews and just go and see this movie. You will not be disappointed.
