Audience Reviews for Cosi

A really heartfelt film with a lot of really strong performances and some really good writing. It has its weaker acting, too, and contains its fair share of cliches, but it's still a really enjoyable movie that hits a lot of themes and spectrums.

Christopher Mercer

Super Reviewer


Pretty funny.

Anthony Valletta

Super Reviewer

Light look at mental illness, infidelity, love, and the mental instability of the performaning arts.
