Good movie. Really really intense ending. Best thing is the great actors
7 February 2017 | by (Glendale) – See all my reviews

Really good movie. It's about an Armenian kid called Aram and his grandfather in Little Armenia. Really strong showing the problems between old generation and new generation in the immigrant family

What surprised me the most is this, it is the first time I've seen an American movie made by an American guy where the actors are all Armenian - they are incredible Actors!

The film has a lot of emotion - specially at the ending. Yeah the ending is really, really good (the chase at the end almost gave my uncle a heart attack) but you gotta see it for the amazing talented Acting.
