A gem!
25 August 2016 | by Sailor-21See all my reviews

My wife and I both found this a small masterpiece.

The writing is enchanting.

The players are superb. Ellen Page never ceases to amaze. She is one very talented lady.

Allison Jenney's work is always worth watching, never more so than in this flick.

I found the Carolyn part played just a wee bit over the top.

At a time when far too many movies are made for a young audience devoid of aesthetic sensibility, it's movies like this that rekindle love of film in the mature movie-goer.
