Don't avoid your emotions
6 May 2020 | by ritz-36184See all my reviews

This movie is a perfect example of how it's important to talk it out with your closed ones to let them know your feelings before it gets too late. While Bill gets professional help to cope with his wife's death, Wes keeps avoiding his emotions. Their encounter brings both of them to a place where they are hit with realization of their current positions. It's a wonderful movie that shows the relationship of a father and son who make attempts to help each other by giving guidance to each other in their desired field.
