cute series
8 October 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the only problem is to define it. because it could be perceived as provocative, bizarre, pure gay story. in fact, it is a lovely comedy. maybe an old fashion one. because the use of irony, bitter humor, perfect actors for roles who are reflections of entire universe of relations, family problems, expectations and problems, all around a child, all around a new perspective about family. so, a cute series. and the opportunity to discover new performances from Ellen Barkin. or Justin Bartha.
