Could've meant so much more...
13 March 2020 | by karlmartin-47352See all my reviews

Everything looked dressed up like a 70's fancy dress, rather than trying the natural look & they obviously had zero money to spend on source music which could've been better to stamp the timeframe of it. The only slight time that I warmed to it was the very end with the social context of what the principle characters went on to achieve. Pretty disappointing & could've done & meant more rather than it trying to be a pretty little period piece, which is the exact opposite of what the film was supposed to be about.
