Definitely worth's mire than 6
1 December 2018 | by hkritikos2004See all my reviews

I was very surprised when I saw that so few people have actually given this movie a rate! It has comedic moments and some laughs but also sweet moments. Overall, I had a great time watching this movie and I loved that it was based on a true story & documentary which I am going to check as well.
