Vaguely Enjoyable

Benjamin

Overall I enjoyed the movie, Colin Morgan played a really socially dysfunctional character that was really deeply unattractive. Yet despite this everyone was drawn to him and fancied him how strange.

The relationships were either superficial or tawdry and perhaps a reflection in the metropolis.

This was no Romeo and Juliet
