An absolute must-see movie!
8 February 2019 | by Lupe50See all my reviews

Prepare to fall in love with Peel; the character and the movie. A beautiful story of innocence, simplicity, family and friendship, that melts your heart and leaves you wishing the movie did not end. The characters are incredibly relatable and real, as are the scenes and the dialogue.

A beautifully written, produced and directed piece with depth and solidity we all crave to see more of. Superb!
