Raw and emotionally driven
3 August 2015 | by myproviderproductionsSee all my reviews

Miles Away was raw and I like the story line. Interesting ending but I will not give it away. It made me laugh and it makes you think because the subject in the film so many people deal with in real life, sad but its true. As you watch this movie you will be asking yourself what you would do if you were in this situation. Heart ache and pain can and does motivate people to do some things that they later regret deeply. But once you release those words in anger or those actions, you can't pull it back and the damage has already been done. The movie has a slow build up but it takes you there and back. I would say this movie is thought provoking and emotionally stimulating. You can rent or buy this movie on Vimeo.
