A film that will stay with you
22 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

A truly unforgettable and unique film. From the cinematography and score to the pitch perfect ensemble casting and performances, the experience is one to be treasured and remembered. Hunter Hughes, who wrote, directed and also starred in the film, took a gamble and it paid off handsomely, and I expect it will continue to be rewarded during this season's festival circuit. The perfect use of poetry to meld with the scenes was original and engrossing as well. The story deals with contemporary issues including a dysfunctional family as well as child abuse, yet it shows the tragedy which it leads to without being tacky or cheap.It really is a film that sticks with you, and I look forward to seeing Hunter's future endeavors.
