Urgh
25 March 2018 | by ladypofthemanorSee all my reviews

The acting is terrible and the camera work gave me motion sickness. The characters, all completely unlikeable, didn't appeal at all so was unable to feel any empathy. The 'funny' bits just aren't funny but truly irritating. The only positive to be taken from it if I'm being very generous is that it attempts to put the subject of depression in young men under a spotlight, so admirable intentions at least. Unfortunately it comes off like a very ambitious sixth form/university project.
