So heartwarming and funny!!
26 January 2018 | by vermassaSee all my reviews

Along with being heartwarming, humanistic, and funny... Grand Unified Theory is intriguing and gets one thinking beyond the navel gazing realm of our consumerist, device oriented culture. It is inspiring! And I look forward to seeing it again. All my fingers turn into thumbs and they are ALL UP!
