I'll definitely watch it again !!
6 February 2021 | by vrobelloSee all my reviews

Justin Timberlake played such a great role in this film. His facial expressions in my opinion, definitely made me feel what he was feeling especially when it came to Sam. Perfect movie for those who can't or I should say won't allow themselves to accept people for who they are. That way of thinking needs to go. That cycle needs to end . Palmer was a little sketched out at first but before one knew it, Palmer had a whole new way of seeing as well as accepting it. The little kid who played Sam was amazing !!! He made me want to give him such a great big hug. He is as real as real can be. Watching this movie gave me a ray of hope in mankind. I'll definitely watch it again !!
