Great Movie with a Shocking Ending!
9 October 2018 | by sarahilayda1See all my reviews

Well this movie is just pure fun! It's harmless, charming, cute and funny. I love British humour it's raw and honest, this movie doesn't try hard it's just there for you to enjoy. I doubt it will be a popular movie but they actually synchronise swim in it and they actually seem to have fun?! It's perfect. Perfect little movie.

And the ending is also very very pleasantly surprising :)

Thanks to the producers for the existante of this movie.
