Herself
12 January 2021 | by dominguezerinSee all my reviews

"Ask better questions."

An Irish accent is going to get an extra half star from me by default because I think that it is a beautiful accent. Though it became predictable after a certain point, I still thought that the film was executed well. Nothing particularly stood out as fantastic, but that it isn't to say that I didn't enjoy it. There were moments that had me on the edge of my seat. For the sad story that it was, it ended on a great note that I thought was hopeful.
