User Reviews

 
Outstanding drama
16 August 2020 | by bretnoelSee all my reviews

Only one user review at the time of me writing this?! This film really deserves a much wider audience. It's not a superhero film granted but it is a top quality drama featuring outstanding performances, quality writing, characters and dialogue. One of the best dramas out there and unfortunately it hasn't got it's fair share of recognition! There's beautiful locations in the film and a whole lot of heart. A solid 9/10 from me.
