Gem
1 June 2020 | by Romulus1953See all my reviews

This film is truly a gem, strange that it went so quietly and not reviewed; based on a true story, the film deals with the daily problems of disability in all its angles, facets, problems; the cast is well established, the lead role is of Aaron Paul who does a really good job, but also the supporting cast that sees actors like Lena Olin, Tom Berenger, Shannon Lucio, Jeff Daniels and a rediscovered Tom Sizemore. The film was shot in 2011 and it is not clear why it only came out in 2020, perhaps problems of distribution; in any case it is an excellent film, very touching, even photography does a good job; definitely worth seeing, highly recommended.
