Thumbs up!
31 January 2017 | by pauliecorleone-72628See all my reviews

Guess it's about time I stopped getting surprised by how well-made and enjoyable these smaller- scale, lower budget productions are now. Hollywood's lowest point in time is turning out to be a great opportunity for independent cinema to thrive -- one that seems to have been grasped tightly by the artists eager to deposit their talent, a graceful offering at the viewer's feet.

Very good movie. Subtle. Touching on religion, multiformity, politics, war, originality, depression, esoteric balance. Clever, funny writing, effortless dialogue, casual performances (as per the plot's dictation).

Go in fearless, you will enjoy this one -- and a special shoutout to Ally Sheedy's The Breakfast Club persona, Allison Reynolds, who obviously grew up into a true-to-character-progression Joani Lunsford. Very effective casting and a delight to watch.
