Quotes

[last lines]
Zelda Fitzgerald: Seems like no matter who you start out writin' about, it always turns out to be about us. Poor Goofo. I reckon you think that if you write the story often enough maybe some time, some way, it will have a happy ending.

A Slow Moving TV Biopic Movie
8 October 2019 | by badboyjohn-38189See all my reviews

This movie was mostly boring to watch with a script that had some scenes that seemed to drag on too long but some scenes were really dramatic. The acting was good overall considering what the actors had to work with and the cinematography however was excellent plus it seemed that they tried to get all of the details right of that era in regards to clothes and other items.
