Wow.. just wow
2 February 2019 | by cfwcSee all my reviews

You have never seen this movie before. It's original, funny, sad and the best film I've seen in my 5 years at Sundance.

It's this strange combination of drama and comedy, orchestrated so methodically that it leaves me wondering how it could be better.

The acting was amazing, the score was amazing, the directing was amazing. Most importantly, the scenes were so impactful. During the survey of the studio I was laughing so hard I could barely hear what they were saying. During the pitch to Steve's father I was so distraught that I couldn't help but appreciate how human the characters where. During Tampa's sex scene I was angry and sad. No matter what the scene, I was fully engaged - and loved every minute of it.
