Jon Kilik (The Hunger Games series, Babel) produces the film, while Ann Ruark (Biutiful) and Jane Evans (Sin City) executive produces.
Good film, great message, way too slow and dragged out to be a winner for me
The acting, writing, directing and cinematography were all on point for this film but it fell short for me as its 1hr 49min length was way too long and made the film seem boring at times. Some scenes where pointlessly dragged out and should have been edited shorter. This film would of held my attention and still got the point across had it been cut down to 1:20. Not sure if the blame belongs to the director, editor or producers. Still a decent movie that sends a great message. 7/10 from me
