Pretty good
10 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No doubt the film could use some cleaning around the edges. The film has some truly great writing sprinkled in with some kind of average writing, which makes the whole thing sort of frustrating. But really, it's pretty good. The two leads are really fantastic and they have a lot of chemistry, which would have been the biggest hindering factor if they didn't. They make the film work as well as it does. Mostly, it's just really well-made technically for being an independent film. I really wish that more people find out about it because it deserves to be seen by more people, and I look forward to seeing what the director/writer does in the future. Definitely recommended.
