A lot of movies miss this
9 July 2018 | by murray-02052See all my reviews

Sure, I am not a movie expert in terms of writing and storyline.... however I have read comments based on "cliche" or too predictable..... to be honest it really doesn't matter critics really shouldn't be using this forum to flex their muscle.... thus providing inaccurate reviews.... Look the director and photographer are genius... in from this Cinderella world as so many put it... however despite the cliche or predictability they take you into a world that really was unexpected.... at time I gasped and thought oh no ... female version of 8 mile. However it is much more than that....the director seemlessly connects dream , daughter, mother and reality in one frame.... the biggest difference is this movie reveals how a person defies scrutiny, faces it and prospers via common sense and more importantly sentimental value.... anyone fighting the fight needs to see this film.....
