Little more than melodrama
19 February 2019 | by dfranzen70See all my reviews

This movie just never really clicked for me. The basic plot is that two friends reconnect on summer break, six months after a horrific accident, and each finds unorthodox ways of dealing with their grief. There are so many bad decisions in the movie (and not just by the two leads) that the tone felt overwhelmingly overwrought - melodramatic, that is. And I have to admit I was a little put off by the casting of Juno Temple as the "innocent" one (when her character claims as such, I laughed - turned out she was serious and it wound up being an integral part of her decision making). The ladies are the entire story here, but given the gravity of the theme I'm not sure either Temple or Julia Garner were suited to their roles.
