Wonderfully written, blissfully portrayed - This is what I call a DRAMA FILM!
8 April 2018 | by onyinye-egentiSee all my reviews

In these days of so-called big budget Fifty Shades of so-so, thank God for films like "Outside In". Seriously, thank you! "Outside In" is the real deal where love is heart-breaking, painfully flawed, raw! And possibly home-breaking on occasion. This heart-wrenching earth-shattering near-lyrical drama piece grips my heart in a vice from its gentle-toned beginning right to its powerful end. My heart is in my throat begging for a chance and some understanding for the main character, CHRIS, who has been without understanding and compassion, even love, for so long (20 years) his life has become a desert without water, and I kept praying as I watched, for him not to be broken or hurt further by the one person from whom such an act would be a killing blow, Carol. A Tale of the purest innocent love so heart-achingly portrayed that I am without words. Give me "Outside In" over Fifty Shades of Whatever any day!
