Amazing film well deserving of festival awards
19 September 2016 | by dperrierusSee all my reviews

This was my favorite film from the 2016 Cannes Film Festival; and a must see. The entire audience loved it and it was shown in what was likely one of the largest theaters I had been in prior to Cannes. The plot and shots make it seem very Canadian, but it is a great film and should be watched by everyone.

It is well written, directed and the cast does a very good job. The cinematography is great and does a good job at immersing the audience in the story.

The director is now one that I will follow.

Thanks for making such a wonderful film.
