Hard Hitting
14 February 2015 | by brandonk96See all my reviews

I know this won't be much of a review. I'm actually still trying to process the movie in my head.

The storyline was absolutely touching, and it's rare that a film actually leaves me in tears at the end, and this has to be the hardest I've cried after a film. Sure the acting could have been better most times, but everything else made up for it. It was such a job well done.

I really do appreciate the fact that an indie film has had such an impact on me. This is definitely something to add to my favourites to watch again in the future.

Again, I have never been so touched by a movie like I have by this one.
