Fabulous, gritty and moving.
29 November 2015 | by lizakeatSee all my reviews

This was an Excellent film, sensitivity addressing serious topics in a gritty and realistic way. Quite shocking in areas,but not in a sensational way, more to demonstrate the thoughts, feelings and moods of the characters portrayed. Very moving, real and believable performances from all the cast. Brilliant use of props,wardrobe,color to signify depression. The music was emotive and fit the mood of the film perfectly. This film left me thinking more about the impact of mental illness, some of the messages will stay with me. I thoroughly believed it and was drawn in from start to finish. Director and actors worth following. A film that could easily be adapted for educational purposes and to raise awareness. Would highly recommend to all to start discussions around mental health, and how it impacts on all our lives.
