A pretty decent and fresh film based on a true stroy
14 March 2019 | by gollyrebeccaSee all my reviews

It's a good watch, makes you want to find out the truth more and more. Keeps you on your toes going from one suspect to another. Makes you feel like your part of the investigation searching for the clues. I only gave it 7 stars because the ending was short but it was simple and sweet. Not much of a character follow up. You have to be watching the film and concentrating otherwise you may miss out on information that's only mentioned once and the rest won't make sense to you.
