Wonderful love ode to writing
27 February 2020 | by denis-23791See all my reviews

Excellently played by the protagonist and Weaver, her antagonist. We're drawn into the world of literature and enjoy and suffer it through this heart-warming coming-of-age story of the protagonist who learns to make decisions, bravely pursue her dreams and handle her relationships. Feel-good cinema.
