Well written and acted
1 February 2020 | by jerry-70896See all my reviews

This is a quirky cool gay film with some great acting and screenplay....very realistic interpretation with a kick of nihilism and slapstick irony but touching too. What more can I say....very unique and fun to watch. Great cast.
