A movie we all can relate to
29 July 2017 | by refstarSee all my reviews

I picked this off Netflix on a boring Saturday afternoon. Boy I wish I had seen it sooner.

I was totally shocked at how good it is - the story line is something we can all relate to - a world that often isolates those who don't "fit in".

Fionn (Ned) and Nicholas (Connor) are absolutely relatable in their roles, and I loved the cameo by the English Teacher. While some may critique the ending as "predictable", but IMO any other type ending would destroy this movie. After the emotional roller-coaster of the film, we NEEDED that ending.

Thoroughly recommend it for all - especially for those who think that anyone who is different is a lesser individual.
