Opportunity Lost
21 June 2018 | by jonbadartSee all my reviews

Had fairly high hopes for this film. Thought it might be one of those little diamonds in the rough you come across every so often. At least the story seemed to offer potential, but alas, in the end, there was little to feel good about except the well disciplined 1:26 run time.

I suppose there were a few bright spots, though certainly not in the drawing out of the characters. Instead of this small town being populated with a few delightful, original odd-balls, what we get instead are mostly unlikeable, two-dimensional cardboard cut outs. I mean, when the character whose scenes you're most look forward to is a kid (Grace Kaufman), that tells you a lot about the writing.

Maybe I should have gone 4 stars, but the film was easy enough to look at, and like I said earlier, they did at least keep it short.
