A story of triumph just when we need it
6 May 2021 | by tall_daveSee all my reviews

I have been watching Tony Hale in the best comedy series ever written, "Arrested Development" and expected nearly the same character in this movie. I was presently surprised when I found him acting the part of someone that I can relate to. Someone real!

We all have that friend that tries too hard, wants people to notice them and goes out of their way just to have any kind of "win" in their lives. We all need a win, especially now, when we have all been beaten down by so much that is going on in the world.

The movie takes us on a special kind of journey; of the innocence of some people that just want to be remembered and reminds us of the loneliness that is so easily put upon us by others, sometimes because of the need that drives us to feel human and not forgotten.

I won't give away the ending or drop any spoilers in this review, but I will recommend you watch the movie. The 8 stars I gave it are for the culmination of the story, richness of the characters,their performance, and the way it made me feel to be along on the journey. That is why we watch, right? I hope you enjoy the movie, as I did.
