Goofs

29 minutes into the film, the New York City skyline as seen from Sheep Meadow is shown, but the image is backwards. At the end of the film, the skyline is shown again, but the image has been modified with some buildings removed and others added. These errors are apparently the result of these scenes not actually being filmed in New York and the skyline being added by an artist after filming. See more »

Good Acting, Interesting Plot, with Clichéd Moral Platitudes
16 May 2019 | by yumin_chSee all my reviews

It is the clichéd moral of the story: Be a good person. Paying it forward. Doing good to others and expecting nothing in return. It is the same moral platitudes we've all heard of since we were a little kid. This film delivers exactly just that, the trite moral lessons that exist in every religion.

The actress Tiya Sircar's performance in this film is stunning though. She brought alive the image of a cynical news reporter who does not believe in the good deeds of others. Her role in this film is exceedingly relatable, and makes the story more engaging, and makes the moral lessons seem less trite.

Overall, the acting in this film is good. The plot is interesting enough (though somewhat predictable). The moral lessons are a bit cliché. However, this is overall a good watch. 7 Stars!
