Perfect!
22 August 2015 | by snipershotsphotographySee all my reviews

It is rare these days to find a movie that really grabs my attention, this movie did it! From the start to the end, it kept my on my feet and it actually made me sob. One of the best movies I have seen, highly recommending it to all people of all ages. A true inspiration. Love movies that leave you feeling like this. I am a grown 34 year old man and I have seen so many movies in my life. I usually have a good judgment and figure out how movies will turn out especially towards the end. But not this movie! I wanted to see every scene. I felt like I was a child again. Curious about stories and what was going to happen. One of my favorite films ever. We need to make more movies like this. God bless all the people that made this happen and thank you for sharing it to the world.
