One of the best movies I've seen this year
12 March 2019 | by liamscheathSee all my reviews

Great movie. Not sure why people are suggesting its not. Heart wrenching, difficult to watch at times. Clearly didn't have the pressures of a big studio dictating the plot.

Give it a go and you won't be disappointed.
