Casper and Dominic are reading "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton in school, which is a story of troubled teen boys who have many similarities to this movie's characters. See more »
A unique and moving story
The ending could not have been more perfect.
It really brought together the whole story; a circular structure that will leave you undoubtedly moved.
I really enjoyed this film... Such a unique story that's explores an interesting and often overlooked way of life; the potato harvesting industry in Maine.
It was unlike anything I had seen before, aided by fanatic performances from all of the cast! Everything felt very real.
It was interesting to discover that the talented writers and directors - Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly - come from a documentary background!
This was definitely incited into the film, with the extremely raw elements of realism. Beautifully written and shot too!
I highly recommend this film. It's something out of the ordinary yet it has a deep sense of sorrow and empathy that we can indeed all relate to.
Kudos to everyone involved! Great film.
