I Loved This Film
26 June 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I thought this film was great. I'm sad to see the other review was so negative, but if they want a better film then they should make one themselves, which I'm certain they can not do.

I thought the story line moved along just fine and I love the piano music throughout the movie. I can also relate since I was a troubled teen myself, one who struggled to find himself. The movie really isn't that bad.

Not everyone will like the same things - that's OK. It's called contrast. If there was no contrast in this world we would all be blind.

Sure, these aren't high ranking actors and actresses, but they certainly did a great job I think. It's worth watching. If you have a digital subscription NetFlix, you can watch film there. Take a chance - you might just like it :)
