Porcupine Lake.. where when why
4 July 2018 | by jetgriffSee all my reviews

I will leave my first review beneath this review as it seems to take a couple of viewings. After all the hype one (me) expected too much. Considering the girls ages they both put on a class performances almost on par with more mature actors. We will see more of them. The story line is good, could have been better in places, some things not needed to be included. Stunning scenery. I have had several conversations with Ingrid Veninger and she was eager to promote her film well. Much appreciated and helped understand things.

Yes we all know what its about and that a few privileged people have seen it... and those on Air Canada flights. Its been released now 9 months and still not freely available to buy, rent pay or to view. When I tried to pay to view, I was told my credit card is not registered in UK so go away. When asked they said it will make more money being released little at a time... This I find had to work out as instead of being a Block Buster movie it will be relegated to the ranks of "has been" short movies on Youtube ... Questions must be asked.

Well I finally got to see it, very disappointing, the trailer contained all that was relevant in the movie. If you want to see a movie about this subject "The First Girl I Loved" and "The Truth About Jane" are 100 times better and more informative, plus they "flow" and easy to watch. Sorry but my score is still 1.
