Remarkably delicate
5 August 2020 | by abdullahaboodiSee all my reviews

Great romance movie, down to earth in the emotions it portrays and the characters feel so real, like if they were friends you could have. The story of the present and the past is so well paced, with eventual nice surprises and so heartfelt.

I also enjoyed a lot how the jazz accompanied the rhythm of the movie and so great seeing Christian Scott playing in the movie!
