Hollywood!!!! This is what you need to do!!!
4 April 2020 | by jteedotSee all my reviews

This movie was so good. Recommended by the GLobe & Mail recently. I don't know why more films aren't made like this - on real life topics. It was entertaining, funny sometimes - despite the subject, I felt compelled and interested in the characters. And most of all it was BELEIVABLE!!!! People actually did things that I was like "That's ACTUALLY what a person would do"! Didn't make it boring or kitchen sink or whatever. It made it actually enjoyable because I believed things - I believed the people. I believed how the story played out. What a rare treat!!!

REally good lead actress! Never heard of her before. Would love to see more of her. The whole cast was really good. And great music.

Highly recommend. Especially if you're interested in dramas or suspense-y/dramas about real things. This movie is a hidden gem.
