It is about life, that is the point
24 December 2020 | by kjhywoodSee all my reviews

Those that say this movie didn't have a point, completely missed the point. Life, choices, relationships, and death are human experiences, and somewhere along the way we learn, know beauty, love, and catastrophe, make difficult choices, and question our purpose. Enjoy it for what it is.
