Everyone needs a donkey
26 March 2019 | by amonteagleSee all my reviews

Heartfelt and funny, this movie engages the audience to reflect on societal issues and the pivotal role family and friendships play.

A beautifully told story, the characters weave in and out seamlessly as we explore their journeys and see how an individuals journey is never truly ventured alone.

Lots of laughs and ultimately a feel-food film. This is a must-see!
