Stage...ish.
16 February 2021 | by KikijeanneSee all my reviews

The way it's written and performed is done more in the style of a stage production, not the normal naturalism you'd expect on screen. Can makes it seem overacted. I don't know, it's a stylistic choice... I just don't know if it's a choice the director intended to make. Someone here said it's like a collection of acting exercises, which is pretty accurate.

Didn't finish. Some might like it, some might not. Could feel the presence of some over-directing in it. Like the way Malcolm ate the mac and cheese. Eurgh, no. Stop. You're wasting your actors potential.
