A Lively, Vibrant Film
28 March 2019 | by ryannahigianSee all my reviews

This is the second film I have seen with McKenzie Chinn (Animator being the other), and I have to say that McKenzie has real depth and potency to her acting ability. As an artist myself, I sense that she too is an artist, aside from acting of course, and I say this because like, say, a painter, she works with and "melds color" on canvas as well as she conveys emotion on screen. This film made my spirit feel buoyant as I watched it, and overall I enjoyed the "film journey" I made with the main characters. The music was spot on, and the cinematography and directing was sharp, smooth, and had "the real feel." Finally, as an added bonus, I got to see my home town of Chicago shine on screen.
