User Reviews

 
One of the best movies of the genre
9 September 2018 | by denniserdSee all my reviews

Must watch! The movie just grips you from the start and does not let go. The acting is superp and the shots are beautiful. It portrays the harshness of the wilderness with the first feeling of the youth coming of age.
