The Things We Do For Love
31 January 2019 | by FoutainoflifeSee all my reviews

Lovestruck young man travels across the ocean, then across America to the old west in search of the girl he loves. He runs into someone who can help guide him to his destination but our young man doesn't know all that his guide knows.

This was a slowly paced film but I really didn't notice it. The scenes are well shot and I always found something in each of them that kept me interested. It was well acted and the story is not bad at all. I think it was a decent film.
