So Emotional
13 February 2019 | by jordanfields-71473See all my reviews

Oh my, this film had my emotions running free. I cried, I laughed, I just didn't expect to be so moved right from the beginning. I just can't get enough of this film and will be watching again with my friend tomorrow. 2 thumbs up!
