Therefore, when he arrives Halifax, discovers that the villagers believe that he is "The Chosen One", a man with the ability to heal all diseases, at the same time that Halifax's local Sheriff starts a procedure against Alec, in the belief that he's a fraud and he's cheating people.

Waste of time, even on a boring day
14 November 2017 | by corrupteddivinitySee all my reviews

So I thought I'd have a lovely weekend coming, got this film to watch with my boyfriend on a rainy, cold November Saturday night and... what a disappointment. The main character is quite unlikeable, keeps repeating the same phrase that everyone is mental around him, doesn't even want to comprehend what's going on. The little girl that appears later in the film played well, yet her character came out of nowhere and the scenes they wanted to create with her and the main character (that were supposed to be heart-warming and sweet) were more cringy than what they were aiming for. The film had a lot of potential but it was ultra boring and dragging for too long. Don't recommend.

PS. Maybe I feel this way about it because I watched it before my period.
