I gave it a 10/10 because this movie did for me everything that I look for in a movie; it was captivating, emotional, mysterious and deep! The 2 main actresses were a perfect fit! They added beauty and real true character that I personally cannot see any other actresses that pop into my head doing such a role so perfectly! If you can relate to this movie then it really gives you feelings and something to think about, unlike a lot of movies these days that just end and leave you saying "was that really IT?!" This one left me with lots of imagination and even closure (which is actually what the end was all about!) Thank you for this piece, it truly inspired me!
