Art and Film Intersect in this Beautiful Tale!
18 September 2018 | by Rakefet27See all my reviews

I love the way this film reminds me of a time when film was art. Definitely keep an eye on Jeff Frumess... I'm certain we haven't heard the last of him. He has a unique perspective on the world and we're lucky he shares it with us.
