User Reviews

Completely satisfying
20 February 2018 | by cberkman-898-331858See all my reviews

I rarely write reviews of films, but this one is a gem worth recommending. Yes, it's probably a low budget indie film from New Zealand, but the acting is sufficient with the performance of the main character very solid. Why this film deserves a good rating is because the story is fresh, enjoyable, suspenseful, and satisfying...part sci-fi, mystery, drama, and comedy. Other reviewers have already summarized the plot. What I'd like to add is a message to the person wondering if this is worth watching tonight - if you enjoyed the film Dear Frankie, you would probably enjoy this film like I did.
