I watched this movie not knowing what to expect. On the one hand I was excited because I heard some good stuff about it, but as always, I was a bit skeptical because it is an independent movie. No big studios behind it. And it was a really refreshing change from watching the over-fed Hollywood blockbusters, that in the late time, tend to look-alike.
I won't give away much, but it is about somewhat forbidden fruit, love that was not suppose to happen. Young guy with a bright future falls for an older maid. The maid recognized many similarities between her and the young boy, and he reminded her of her own forgotten hopes and dreams. On the other side, he found someone who understands him.
Can they make it, can their love stand the test of time? Well, I recommend you to go and watch this nice movie and enjoy in it, as I have enjoyed. I give it a 8/10!
