I get to see this movie in a film festival, thinking it was a horror movie. To my surprise it wasn't even the kinda movie I would usually got to see, despite that I still enjoyed it. My boyfriend loved , thought and that's the reason I'm recommending this.
It's a drama that revolves around relationships and a mystery, with some light hints of dark (for lack of a better word)humor. Quite captivating.
I don't want to give away the plot, since the less you know the more entertaining it is. You need to be a little open minded, since implies a taboo subject. All I can say it's that's indeed a original history, which I think they could have exploit a little bit more.
If you like really fast paced, it's not your type of film. But it does flows organically, isn't boring nor feels particularly slow/dense at any point.
The acting was good most of the time, and if the protagonists would've been a bit better, this movie would be excellent. After all, the history relies in you believing and empathizing with them.
It's an indie drama worth watching if you're looking for something fresh and interesting. And also... you may wanna stay a bit after the credits.
