Touching tale of two endearingly dimwitted souls on a personal quest
29 November 2016 | by carlstepSee all my reviews

This tale captivates with its photography from its first frame. It tells of two less than average intelligence people in their twenties who find each other and set out on a quest to see the woman's estranged daughter. They cross paths with two crusty, experienced bounty hunters who are involved in their own bizarre adventure. The interaction between these four characters is funny, strange, and uplifting as they weave their way through various challenging situations. The prime value of the film is in the acting of the characters who make you love them no matter how unusual their actions might seem. This is a film not to be forgotten because of its dramatic visual images, its dialogue, and the sensitive acting that creates great sympathy for those who struggle to accomplish what they believe to be necessary using their diminished intelligence to the best of their abilities.
