Poignant Charmer
5 July 2016 | by josippieSee all my reviews

I tuned in when The Quitter was half over, but no matter... I got the picture soon enough, and was instantly captivated by the sincerity of its characters and of the whole production.

The simple story line does not take away from portraying the complexity of making one's life choices, day by day.

Destiny was such a natural actress, and her 8 yr old Luka totally charmed me. Absent was any woodenness, or glancing (inappropriately) in odd directions. And there were strong performances by the minor characters as well as the leads.

I loved the ending, too. This film needs to be seen and enjoyed for what it is: a bittersweet slice of life that combines hope with a realistic possible outcome that doesn't necessarily wrap it up with a bow.
