Slow drama that builds and catches you unaware
8 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a drama, a very slow building drama that should be thought of as that way right from the start, do not expect anything more than that. Give this a miss if you are looking for action and explosions, this is definitely not for you.

I think most people who enjoy drama movies have seen something like this before, but it is definitely not for everyone. My partner found it boring and stopped watching after 15 minutes.

Josh Helman, who I do not recognise from any movie I have seen, even though I have seen movies he has been in, does a brilliant job in this, far exceeded my expectations. The fact that he also directed and co-wrote this really shows he is talented.

Jennifer Allcott, Celeste Arias and Grayson DeJesus, also pretty much unknowns to me hold this movie together and make it worth watching.

7/10 for me though not a movie I would watch more than once.

Recommended if you like drama that requires concentration and a bit of deep thinking.
