A genuine gem of a film.
7 November 2015 | by KiraDKSee all my reviews

I have been a IMDb member for more than 12 years, this is probably the place on the internet where i have spent the most time overall...My profile has never been complete, until now, this is my first review ever, I just felt like I have to say something about this wonderful movie. It had me from the beginning, its a very calm and down to earth movie, it doesn't move fast, but there are not any dull moments at all, it just seems like anything is exactly perfect for this film, it seems pure and genuine...The main character Jane is so wonderfully played by Sidney Pierick, wow, her performance is amazing, no overacting at any point, she seems so effortless genuine and likable as any actress can be...Same goes for her Uncle, played by Benjamin Meadows, the two of them are such sympathetic characters, I just couldn't help caring for them. This movie is a drama and it does have its share of "words of wisdom", but somehow it manage to never seem like "cheap clichés" like it tends to in most movies, I have no idea why that is, it just fit so perfectly in. After watching I did a bit of reading, shocked to learn that the man who both directed and wrote it, was only 20 at the time, that blew me away how such a young guy are already able of doing this gem of a movie, cant wait to watch more of his work, its so very impressive. Well, Im happy that I got to see it, a great experience.
