A Powerful Film
28 May 2018 | by annmaffeofuriaSee all my reviews

While difficult to watch, this film should be seen by all young adults The performances are uniformly perfect and the message is all the more influential because it is true. There will be awards in this film's future especially for Laura Dern.
