life is not about the destination, it is about the journey. To me this movie is very much an adult watershed movie, a coming of age tale for three women who have seen their twenties go by in a flash. I do not know why there are no reviews for this movie, it is a great movie I wanted to start doing more reviews for more indie movies that I really enjoyed. I am male and sure, I love action movies etc but to me this may appeal to a more discerning audience than most Hollywood movies would. As I said before, I think this is an indie movie after looking at some of the cast and crews IMDb profiles I guessed this was a bold project for a lot of them. It was however not easy to know that it was an indie movie at all from watching it, unless like me you watch movies endlessly. The actors all carry their roles believably and the characters are written just as well, which just goes to show you don't need a big budget to make a brilliant little movie, which for aspiring artists like me is a very big inspiration. It was actually a nice surprise for me to find that the three main actors actually wrote the story / movie. It was nice to relate to a movie and it's characters and feel some of the emotions with them, together with some clever and quirky directing and some great comedy I really enjoyed this movie and would recommend it. The thing that drew me to the movie was the fact that I enjoy boats myself and boat projects. It was a nice medley of different characters and feelings that made this story work. I look forward to any similar projects these guys work together on. I gave it 8/10 which is a high score for me, more than I give most block busters.
