Just a mess of a movie
4 October 2019 | by prberg2See all my reviews

This movie is just really painful. I wanted to walk out a few times. The story is just lame and a real mess. Portman does a decent job in the role... but the movie doesn't know what it is or what to do with it's actors. In the end I didn't care at all about the characters and the story just didn't' go anywhere.

Seemed like it might be interesting... but ended up being just a bit waste of time.
