A bittersweet movie worth seeing
12 November 2012 | by hellornolaSee all my reviews

This movie is severely underrated and unknown yet I have no idea why. Everything about it is absolutely fantastic. The acting is great and believable all around (hats off to Mark Pellegrino especially) and the plot is well-written and kept me wanting more until the very end.

The only reason I'm not giving this a 10/10 is because of the rather odd ending that I couldn't make sense of. I don't think it takes away from the movie or would put anyone off from re-watching it though. Maybe you just have to leave it up to your own imagination as to what happens.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Pellegrino's work, or just someone who enjoys a great underrated movie. With so many fast-paced movies out there, this one is bound to treat you to something a little different than usual.
