Emotional but 30 minutes too long and just too obvious
12 March 2020 | by coombsstephenSee all my reviews

There are good parts to this film and the story is definitely one worth telling but it sadly doesn't quite hit the mark. However I did feel it maybe wasn't aimed at men, which may be the reason it wasn't for me.

I felt it was just a bit dragged out as the story lacked some depth despite the subject matter and would have been a better film has it been a bit shorter. I felt myself thinking "come on, get on with it" a few times in the film.

Also the film lacked much of a twist, there were a few but none were exactly major shocks and everything that happened was virtually telegraphed.

It's worth a watch but don't have high hopes
