Good Film of it's Type - Low IMDB Score is Not Reflective Again
9 February 2019 | by Vils1See all my reviews

I stumbled across this whilst in a 'record shop' mode. It is a good film of it's type if you like music, record shops and relationship dynamics. A few niggly bits (including the ending) but the low IMDB score is not reflective again - so I have given it an extra star.
