One of the most amazing movies a watched in 2016
29 May 2016 | by sssachin26See all my reviews

This is one of those awe-inspiring movies you just can't get enough of! After watching Barefoot for a thousand times, this seems just perfect.

The writing is just one of the other fantastic things of this movie. And hats off to Louisa Krause for attaining such a high level of acting. It seems so natural you just can't believe it. Every bit of this movie feels real. The anger, the curiosity & her sister's protectiveness all were perfectly blended into the script.

This movie gives a new perspective to people who aren't aware of such situations. This movie made me understand more about everything around me.

I don't know if the people who watched it would appreciate it as much as I do but this movie deserves to be released in every theatre in the world. I was disappointed it didn't release here in India.
