Bella Thorne
22 August 2019 | by RodazcuiSee all my reviews

I am not sure why or how but I connected to Bella's character completely and felt the emotions that she passed on in the movie. I have never seen that vulnerable side of her to the point of fully understanding how hard is a moment of acceptance and "let go" situations. People do not realize how precious life is, and people do not understand how much that woman has inside to give to everyone. I was totally touched. Must admit that cried my eyes out because the movie is about acceptance on what life really is about and about getting the best out of it. After watching this movie, I just felt like contacting Bella to let her know how much I value her and how incredible her light is. I recommend this movie to everyone so that life is valued again specially at an early stage.
