Fantastic Film
19 July 2013 | by (Brighton, England) – See all my reviews

Having watched this twice now, I loved it even more the second time.

The lead actress is extraordinary. The rest of the cast are inspired and committed.

There are some shots that are beautiful, and it also makes some sense of all the crazy.

A unique film, it made me laugh out loud, and it made me cry.

I also loved the score.

The Rope Jumping element was fantastic, and made me appreciate even more how much work she put into the role. Entirely believable.

Also, the sister was hilarious, and somewhat reminiscent of Chloe Moretz first roles.

And as always, Kristin Chenoweth was brilliant. LOVE that woman.

Emotionally, it made me think about families, and about how relevant it was to my own, and many others, upbringing. Because Love.

Loved it, will be looking for more from the writer, director and Olesya Rulin.
