No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
...the movie's theatrical origins remain obvious throughout, both in the dialogue and direction.
It's hard to say that the picture is bad, just that it's dry as tinder without a spark to ignite it.
Incredible performances highlight this brittle, emotional saga of how significant moments in life can have considerable impact later.
