User Reviews

A Movie underrated. Great story and well acted. Profoundly moving.
29 April 2019 | by hevean-25790See all my reviews

Sometimes a movie gets lost in the shuffle. Certainly the plot is old and often told but movie making is all in the telling. Zosia Mamet give a memorable performance with an authenticity that moves one and forces identification. Her performance is so effortless that it is easy to miss the exceptional acting. Which means that the acting was superb. The movie captures the hesitation to expose feelings in love while recognizing that the goal of love is to share life with someone who loves you as well. Perhaps the promotion was weak. But this movie is a must see and brings a catharsis to all who struggle with commitment but do dare to risk to truly love and be loved.
