Classic love story
31 December 2020 | by DrewDeLandSee all my reviews

This was a beautiful film and the last act of the film had me on the edge of my seat of the will they or won't they. I will not spoil the film but Nnamdi and Tessa gave extraordinary (remember that word) performances. I loved the story and the old school cinema feel put a big smile on my face.

If you love romance films, I highly recommend you give it a watch.
