A very moving and powerful film
12 August 2019 | by motionlessknightSee all my reviews

This was an amazing movie. Just as a fair warning though, it is a little sad. It's not the element of death and tragedies that makes it so, but just seeing these two people struggling to sustain their self-destructive lifestyle. As the description suggests, she really does take the lovable Adam down a dark path. It changes him immensely and causes him to push people away.

It's really a realistic story because especially being around 17, many people would be very impressionable to the ways of somebody they are very attracted to. Once that attraction evolves into love, then one could easily find themselves at the mercy of the way their lover was choosing to live, for better or worse, doing anything to make that lover happy even if it destroys the very nature of who they are in the process. Alice, played by India Eisley who I was unfamiliar with until this movie, is a very attractive girl. She is sweet in her own way, rough around the edges, and beautiful. It made me put myself in Adam's shoes and wonder how far I would go to give my heart to someone like that.

It's a very realistic, powerful, and gripping film. I'm nailing this with a full 10 stars.
