Great !
26 December 2014 | by webpunSee all my reviews

I won't waste too much of your time with a long review. The plot of this film will undoubtedly be covered in other reviews and the synopsis/summary sections so I won't write about them either.

Let me just say that I'm a 23 year old guy with a stoic approach to life and a cynical world view. Yet this film has brought me closer than anything else I've seen.

The writing is realistic. Epic raw performances from the entire cast, Pete Ammel especially.I believe that is what seeing a great movie is all about.....right?

Definitely a must see !
