I picked this movie without prejudice, as I hadn't heard a word about it. And I loved it!!!
The tempo is sustained, the performances outstanding. An interesting story with a twist, well written, and the perfect cast.
One element that also enhances the movie: its diversity. Multi-faceted characters which gives spice to the story's meat.
The only downside: the way love is given a bad name. How do you want the youth to connect if you keep telling them that love ain't the sh*t?? It is a recurrent theme in 21st century cinema that i condemn, because it perpetuates mechanic sex--humans deprived from feelings. I am for a little more optimism in that domain and the human species.
