Best Movie Of The Year Thus Far....
19 August 2019 | by sidewaysintrafficSee all my reviews

Let me first start off by saying I'm not gay and don't typically watch movies with gay images or titles. With that being said, I'm glad I didn't pass this one up. Definitely my favorite movie thus far this year.

We all grieve in different ways, but this one hit home. I mean how many of us try to open a new door without closing the existing one.

The acting was superb. The Mexican (Ernesto) reminds me of my uncles and grandparents in his work ethic and conscious of what they're being paid for.
