Hit and miss but mostly a hit
27 June 2020 | by oldfashionedfilmsSee all my reviews

The scenery on show is very beautiful. Cast performances are amazing. Some scenes feel very out of the blue and dont fit in as well as others for flow. Overall, it is a very promising film that is very good, but feels as if it had more potential.
