Bart Bromley: In a 1993 study, individuals who said that they were in love had their brains scanned to show neural activity.

It's a very interesting story, which develops well. Bart is a fascinating character, who's motives for doing what he does are sincere and innocent in his own way, buy invasive and voyeuristic.

The ending should have been so much better, if anything I thought it spoiled what was otherwise a very good film, the story builds and develops gradually, but the ending was harsh and abrupt.

Always great to see Helen Hunt, but the star of the show is of course Tye Sheridan, who's performance is actually captivating, what an amazingly talented young man he is. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot of him in the future.

Boy oh boy this was good, 7/10.
