A Satisfying Intimate Film Worth My Time
4 February 2018 | by judymerharSee all my reviews

After 10 minutes of Inheritance, the actors begin to take ownership of their roles enabling the viewer to get lost in their journey. This film is set in Belize, but truly, it could have played out in any rural town, including the bayous of Louisiana.

While I wouldn't call the ending happy, it's satisfying and resembles life off screen: unpredictable, heartbreaking and full of possibilities for redemption.

This movie was worth my time...bonus that it has two female directors!
