Awesome Quirky Movie
22 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely loved this quirky movie... and the score is amazing. The lead characters are certainly not what one is used to in the context of Hollywood dramas -- very strange, sometimes. The scenes are warm and touching -- sprinkled with many bizarre little vignettes. Sister Sarah steals the show in each scene she's in.

The haunting melody of, could it be, a harmonica?, lifts the movie to a new level whenever the signature tune begins. Austin Wintory does the movie proud, that's for sure. The movie, as a whole, is really a mixed bag of curious scenes, certainly 'quirky' is a good description and highly recommended from my point of view.
