Great film!
1 November 2016 | by nklairbnsnSee all my reviews

Director Joe Grisaffi screened this film at our university and it completely exceeded my expectations! The script is beautifully written by Gilmore, who also gives a lovable performance as Lars with the help of a charismatic and varied supporting cast. Grisaffi is a wonderful director who isn't afraid to take risks with style or content. It's a very funny film but also very poignant story about depression, adulthood and friendship. It never gets too dark, neither does it get too corny. Grisaffi himself is a very friendly guy who is extremely passionate about what he does, so it was awesome to get to meet him! As a film lover, I totally recommend this movie.
