A simple story enriched with imagination
12 August 2017 | by man_dan_87See all my reviews

Liked the story line and the imagination plot. Was a decent effort, could have been better if the actors gelled into the script. I felt there was a minor gap between the story and a group of talented actors. Alexa Nisenson was exceptional though.

Positives: Story-line, Animation, Georgia, Principal

Negatives: Predictable towards the end.

Rating it 7 as I liked the story-line.
