Lovely
2 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

FROM ABOVE is a wonderful love story. Danny Glover is fantastic as his character lovingly looks back on his life with his love, Venus. Norry Niven does a great job directing and the production quality is excellent. This film also addresses the challenges of an interracial couple and shows how love can overcome those challenges. This is a great film that people of all ages are sure to enjoy! I would recommend for families as well. It is truly a love story that spans across generations. FROM ABOVE is a film that teens and adolescents will find interesting, and that parents will find appropriate. I highly recommend it for everyone.
