A love story with a different twist
11 April 2017 | by lazz338See all my reviews

A story about how two people with nothing to lose meet in unlikely situation. It seems that Hollywood has taken a liking to darker and grim themed films lately, but The Sweet Life has a somewhat lighter and humorous approach. Which, with the sublime acting of Chris Messina and Abigail Spencer makes this movie a great watch. The chemistry the characters they play have on screen is amazing and I could see them being together in real life. The only thing I disliked was the message it was sending about depression and how it could be avoided. But that's just my opinion. You should watch and see it for yourself!
