Quotes

[first lines]
Christmas Flint: [looking up at the sky] Last summer momma gave me this flashlight to signal the aliens. She said, of course there's life out there. Now go outside. But now it's just me and y'all. The aliens of the universe. So if you can hear me, I'm Christmas Flint. Human female. I think you'd like me. I think you'd wanna be my friend.

A well-proportioned movie
18 January 2020 | by davidjaldredSee all my reviews

Although at times I felt the makers were trying a bit too hard to pull at the heartstrings, and sometimes the influence of Little Miss Sunshine and other films of that kookie, quaint, highly engineered 'homespun' ilk seemed a bit obvious, I really, thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'll admit I shed a tear and I let out a number of very un-British "Whoop"s during the course of this highly engaging and endearing little movie (and it is a little movie; a well-proportioned movie made with a certain amount of love). I will recommend it to all my jaded cinefile friends - no matter how much they might ridicule me!
