Brilliant Film!
11 July 2016 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I knew the premise going in so the twist didn't surprise me. What surprised me was how impactful and emotional it was. Even knowing the conceit before hand will not prepare you for how powerful and moving the story really is. The acting was topnotch all around and it was the particularly the performances that contributed to how the film touches you. The two leads Briana Evian and Tyler Blackburn give exceptionally poignant performances that brought these issues and emotions to life. This is all to the credit of the director Kim Rocco Shields, who has masterfully weaved together an amazing cast and story that will reach deep into your heart. Now more than ever this film has relevance and needs to seen and talked about. Honestly, if your not moved or touched by this film, you're not alive.
