Great film, fantastic performances
28 June 2016 | by cathieboltonSee all my reviews

I saw this film at the Edinburgh film festival and it was fantastic. The two main leads are incredible and the relationship they have is very believable. It's a film about love (platonic) and hope. It's gritty, funny and may reduce you to tears, but you just can't stop watching. I loved the way the story is not told in a linear fashion so it's not until the end that you know everything that's happened which keeps you interested and guessing about what draws and binds the leads together. The film had an excellent response from audiences at Edinburgh. If you fancy a break from all the blockbusters and want to watch an intelligent, brilliant film, definitely give this a try.
