Good movie
21 December 2019 | by skiprancerSee all my reviews

Went with family and friends to see this in theaters. Surprisingly, the theater was almost sold out and a few people clapped during the credits. It was pretty impressive for a limited release. The acting, at times, was a little forced and rehearsed feeling. The lead actress did well though. From my research, it looks like it was her first movie. The story does start off pretty slow, but as the movie went on, it picked up. The message was strong on forgiveness but in a very real way. I look forward to seeing what this debut film crew has coming up next. Overall, it was decent and is worth the watch for the message and imagery alone.
