User Reviews

 
Another underrated non-mainstream film.
24 August 2019 | by thesuthernmanSee all my reviews

Yes, it's a Hollywood film with all the clever coincidences and neat n' tidy endings, but it is also very clever, well acted, and even poetic. Go see a film that doesn't involve flying superheroes, gun fights, or animated toys...you'll be glad you did.
