This movie made me feel great!
12 April 2017 | by deeiadmtSee all my reviews

After leaving the theatre without being moved to feel something memorable from the past three blockbusters I've seen, I'm happy I stumbled upon this movie while it was playing in LA. Not only did I love it, I didn't check my watch once, that's saying something. And, what more do you need to say when a movie makes you feel great? Nothing!
