Emotional but 30 minutes too long and just too obvious
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
