User Reviews

 
A feel good movie with terrific performances.
3 January 2021 | by samratsingraurSee all my reviews

The movie is an authentic, beautiful and deeply powerful ode to the importance of life,friends and relationships. It has a powerhouse trio I didn't know I needed- flex their maturity as actors in such poignant, nuanced performances. Exactly what we need right now. And these type of movie deserve more recognition.
