A Hidden Gem
16 December 2020 | by Dave_05See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie completely by accident (and with help of the current COVID situation), and I am so glad I did. An excellent film with many twists and turns, some dark humor, and also a story of lost and found potential.

It is a shame that more people have not found this movie; hopefully streaming and word of mouth will help it get a bigger audience. My only problem with it is the music that plays over the last scene; really does not seem to fit.
