Incredible, Heartwarming and touching
2 August 2016 | by maxjsbergerSee all my reviews

I have always been scarce to rate a movie 10/10. However I can not describe how truly deserved that number is. I stumbled upon this movie very casually and came out devastated, touched and changed quite honestly. Now this may seem extreme (and I share the passion of mocking others that take reviews to the next level), but this movie contains everything I love about movies and does so with ease. Let me start with Ellen Page. Wow. Ellen has always performed magnificently, but this movie in my humble opinion has defined her as an actress. Allison Jenny, destroyed my heart and plunged me into the character (Margo) that she took on so elegantly. Never before have I screamed, cried and laughed in a single scene, at the computer, then I did in a certain scene in 'Tallulah', thanks to Allison. I would seriously encourage any movie lover anywhere (since it seriously is a movie for all), to watch this movie if they are in the mood to smile, laugh and cry. 'Tallulah' is a masterpiece and I would define it as an experience. An experience none should live without.
