Finally, A Good Family Movie
24 March 2018 | by dobrescumihaiSee all my reviews

Dear Film Lovers,

Set in the Southern area of the United States of America, this is a slower movie with a lot of wisdom in it. The director has wisely chosen to portrait the friendship between a White Caucasian male and an Afro-American male. Both of them have to take care of their elders in a loving, inspiring psychological drama.

Luckily, psychology in this movie is not as threatening as we are used to be. With the exception of a few difficult scenes, the movie is made with a lot of care and it is even watchable by elders.

Finally, a movie worth watching.

Best Regards,

DOBRESCU_Mihai.
