User Reviews

A trainwreck. Skip it.
8 December 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

This was just an awful film. Tennessee Williams and Zoe Kazan's grandfather must both be rolling in their graves. The director and writer ought to both get out of the film business, as should half of the cast.
