Proof you don't need a massive budget to make a great film
26 January 2018 | by pheathcoSee all my reviews

Yes it might look a little cheap around the edges, but its innocence is what makes it such a little gem of a film. Hollywood take note that a huge cgi budget just doesn't substitute for a great story. I thoroughly enjoyed it, a little slow at first but its not long until you're hooked.
