Storyline

When one-eyed high school senior Matt meets 250 lb Jill, he falls more in love than he ever thought possible. However, when graduation comes and Jill moves cross-country to go to college, she then loses over 50 lbs - much to Matt's surprise when he arrives to visit her. While Matt struggles to accept Jill's new body, Jill begins to question whether Matt is really the man she wants to date. As the distance widens between them, the characters are propelled onto a collision course with brutality and loss, forcing them to confront who they are, who they were, and who everyone thinks they're supposed to be.

I enjoyed it.. SO MUCH!!
15 August 2017 | by purplesanzSee all my reviews

I spotted this last night, and, as soon as I saw the synopsis, it immediately caught my attention, so I gave it a try, and wow! It was fantastic!!

I usually hate indie movies or videogames, whether due to the shaky- hand-held camera, or bad lighting/post process, or horrible music, or terrible acting, or poor special effects, they feel "cheap" and I hate that feeling.

This movie, however, felt so professional, so well made, the acting was very solid, the camera was shaky sometimes, but static for the most important scenes; the lighting/places/shooting felt very right to me, and the story was very well written in my honest opinion. The only times when it felt "very indie" to me was when Marin Ireland was on screen, I don't know why, but I didn't like her acting for the most part.

The soundtrack was not bad, but it could have been a lot better.

Perhaps the only thing I didn't like, was the ending, it made me feel like it was rushed, like it didn't have a proper "closure", but perhaps I'm just being biased, it's not bad at all.

Give it a shot if you have the chance, I doubt you will regret it.
