A must see!!!
5 December 2011 | by odogmusicSee all my reviews

I saw this film at a film festival recently and loved it. I can't compliment this movie enough to do it justice, so i recommend seeing it when you get the chance. This story is touching, heartbreaking, humorous, and very well written. I was completely drawn in by it's well developed characters and beautiful direction. The dialogue is so natural and organic that i felt many times as if i were actually sitting in the scenes listening to real conversations. As the young girl in the film evolves with her love for the older woman so did mine. Keep an eye on this Director/Writer because i think we are going to see some outstanding work coming from her in the future. The song in the end title was perfect for the film and really bookended the piece nicely. Cheers to the cast and crew!!!
