It succeeds at it's purpose
12 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

This movie's purpose isn't some crazy action movie. Nor is it an extremely complex story. I don't want to provide spoilers so I'll keep it simple. It is the story of 3 people with a damaged past that come together... and the experience of how they each face the given issue during that moment. And boy does it do it good. The actors did a great job, honestly. This simple movie actually did touch me. I enjoyed it. Near the end I actually started connecting with the characters and liked them. Just watch it. I don't know if I would go to the theaters for it but it is definitely enjoyable to watch at home. I'd say it should at least be a 7/10.

Hope this short review helps.
