Please, watch this
17 November 2018 | by camcat2002See all my reviews

I was skeptical about watching this because of the ages of the leads, but it was perfectly okay in how their relationship was. They both needed someone and they became irreplaceable existences to each other. The actors showed the character's love so well that I could feel exactly what they were feeling. The actors are worthy of awards, they were so good. The story was realistic and deep, diving into people who grow up in the tough world. The youth of the characters allow them to make mistakes and grow, but they stayed true to who they were in the beginning. This is now my favorite movie, the best I've ever seen. I never feel this much for a drama, but it was portrayed so well that it was undeniably perfect. Please watch this.
