A must see!!!
27 July 2017 | by torres-32431See all my reviews

Sometimes we overlooked the truly important things in life and it takes something tragic to open our eyes. This film will be a reality check for everyone who watch it and it makes you appreciate they little things in life that at the end of it all it's what matters the most! A must see, this film is emotional, heart touching and heart warming. I'm not ashamed to say that I shed a few tears while watching it!

Gerard Butler, hat off my friend! Great job on this movie! To be honest, the whole cast hat off to you all!!! Amazing movie!!!
