Audience Reviews for Garage

Sooooo slow. Not a bad movie exactly, but deals with life in a small Irish town, and my goodness, it makes sure you feel their boredom. The cast are all very ordinary and convincing, and it all feels very real.
It is worth a watch, but I couldn't really recommend anyone rush out and rent it.
