A True Work of Art That Puts Historic Cinema Into Present Day
21 August 2016 | by mdugan-07767See all my reviews

Everything is perfect about this film. From the directing, cinematography, acting, set design to the music this movie is a work of art and no film exists of this kind. Trust me, you will leave the theater wanting to go see it a second time like I did as it leaves you wanting to go back for more. For first time director Hunter Lee Hughes this is a huge milestone for him. Can't wait to see what his next film project will be. His style is so rich in history with a modern touch of today's society. The score this movie is beautifully composed. I want a copy of the soundtrack NOW. It fits the mood of the movie so well. From the piano to the cello it sways back and forth with emotions ranging from happy to moments of fear based around the characters current feelings in a scene. Go see this movie!! Once you see it, you will go back for a second, third, fourth time, etc.!!
