Surprisingly endearing and very good
10 May 2014 | by weezebumbleSee all my reviews

I watched this with very low expectations as there have been so few good movies in 2014. From the beginning I could tell that it was going to be better than this years calibre. No over the top American humour, good music and a thought provoking plot. The main character is nuanced and quite endearing without being too trite and emo. The clever writing gives the main characters depth and dimension.

The movie had the sweetness, sense of realiness and comedy of The Year of the Dog.

I will be watching this director's future work and happy to see a woman in the directors seat on this one!
