The Road for dads of daughters....
10 August 2019 | by paulmacqueen70See all my reviews

This was a real slow burn,but i cant help but be effected by it. As the father of two girls this really struck home with me. Both of the leads carry their roles amazingly,and especially Anna Pniowsky,who for such a young actress really steals every scene. Really hoping for a sequel!!
