Storyline

Upon his mother's unexpected death, 30-year-old Peel is left lost and utterly alone. With no job, family, or friends, he must make a choice; live as his mother did, lonely and unsettled, or change the course of his impending fate by breaking out into the unknown, facing the trials and tribulations of an outside world he doesn't understand. Unable to make the house payments, Peel decides to take in a couple of drifters as roommates. After forging what seems to be a burgeoning new family and brotherhood, one of the roommates betrays Peel's trust, compelling Peel to venture out in search of his long-lost, real brothers who had been taken away from him decades ago.

A good time and worth seeing.
3 July 2019 | by CitizenDeviSee all my reviews

What a shame almost no one on this planet saw this movie as of now. It didn't get a proper release, but it should have. Peel is a low-budget indie film with a bunch of heart and very good performances, and it doesn't try too hard to be emotional. Emile Hirsch is great in this.

Overall there was potential here for an even better story but it's worth seeing still and I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a cute and fun flick with something to say. It's a good time.
