Good acting, meh story
8 September 2016 | by aac-brinkSee all my reviews

I accidentally stumbled upon this movie thinking that I selected a series on Netflix. By the time I found out it was too long for an episode I was actually disappointed to find the film was almost to an end. There's some great acting in the movie and it genuinely made me tear up at the end. As far as the story goes, I feel like it was strong , yet missing in-depth explanations of certain aspects. It leaves to guess about some things, which isn't always bad, but in this case I just feel like I watched part of a potentially interesting story. So 10/10 for acting, 5/10 for captivating story and 0/10 would recommend to friends, because I never recommend movies that didn't completely blow my mind.
