Great story telling.
17 February 2019 | by linda-mkhizeSee all my reviews

I was dragged by my wife to go see this movie, an afternoon well spent to say the least. It is shot well , it is directed beautifully, the soundtrack is on point, the actors are so believable and they execute their craft with such ease and confidence. There are very few, if any, moments wasted on camera. Well done young men and women for a brilliant piece of art.
