I absolutely loved this film!
10 July 2017 | by marie_ditSee all my reviews

I normally read the IMDb score for movies before watching them but I decided to give this one a shot based off the description alone (i have a penchant for movies based on the themes of criminology and serial killers) instantly I became engulfed in the storyline and the backstory of the main character, it emotionally took me through a journey and i was stuck to the screen the entire time. I genuinely think this was one of the best movies I've seen in 2017! It was like a mash up of two of my favourite movies the Green Mile and Shawshank redemption! Worth watching!!
