Completely predictable but a cute enough story
7 February 2021 | by YRLY59ESee all my reviews

This is a well acted but completely predictable movie. It has almost zero plot twists from the outset and you can pretty much see where it's going. It's a one and done plot, no deep sub plots or anything. But in this sense it's Ok, it's a nice little story. Just don't expect much depth to it. This is one you sit down, watch knowing what's gonna happen, and are OK with it.

Cinematography was good but it looked a little dark and dreary at times, probably to give mood. Like I said acting it pretty solid all around.
