Just saw it and loved it
23 May 2019 | by kryzhanSee all my reviews

Saw the film with my wife and 13 year daughter this evening and loved the film. We all three had some tears at various points in the story. Just made me want to hug my family. Great story, good acting, well done. Thank you to the producers, writers and everyone else involved. Might just go read the book now.
