Film shows the raw reality of the north.
8 March 2018 | by fillionlandscapesSee all my reviews

I saw this film at a private screening in Yellowknife. I am very skeptical and I expected another B-List film. While the cinematography styles may have left something to be desired, there was no lacking in the plot. The film was well presented in a way that is not "over the top" but is also not "lacking". While the ending of the film felt a bit abrupt, almost as though they forgot to add the last scene, the journey to get to that point was thrilling and exhilarating at almost every point.

I enjoyed this film more than any big name film that I have seen in the last two years.
