Acting out
17 April 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

So using real life events in your artistic work is not really new. Not involving the people who are affected is mean to say the least, but this movie has this as the template. And while it can be "fun" to watch at times (being sarcastic unless you are mean and love the misery of others), it does not hold enough juice for the whole run time.

Overall it's a decent movie, the acting is decent and the flow of the movie is nice too. Depending if you like dramas and how you feel about characters exposing their private life, keeping secrets, others exposing them ... you may like this.
