A Real Gem!
21 April 2016 | by lenigoodSee all my reviews

What a sweet film! It sort of crept up on me how much I liked it. The two leads are so charming and real. The dialogue feels very natural. The stars have a chemistry together that is a delight to watch with each bringing their own personalities to their characters. The writing is excellent and is both insightful and witty. There is an innocence to this movie that is refreshing. The creativity of adding the animation is a very nice touch. It adds a new layer of story-telling that illustrates the way we open up to people and reveal pieces of ourselves. Nothing was forced or over the top. I am going to start it again and watch it all over. I hope more people discover this gem of a film.
