Great little story
29 January 2015 | by nekengren-2See all my reviews

I love this movie. Yes, the first 15 minutes catch you wondering if it is headed anywhere interesting. It is at least quite quirky and keeps you involved.

However, as the film progresses, you learn about the various characters and realize it has much deeper meaning and dialog. The movie just gets better and better until an ending which anybody has to love. This is a movie that sticks and will have you thinking about it long afterwards.

The lowly rating on this has me thinking that people just didn't see anything in the first 5 minutes to keep them going. I guess they bail before anything happens.
