Feels more like a game of cards with a stacked deck than a story that demanded to be told.

The movie lands on the tantalizing suggestion that while being an outcast can lead to anger and frustration, those same emotions can also be a source of pride.

While it's a novelty to see a film with a protagonist played by a non-professional actor who actually still lives in a leper colony, this isn't enough to make this tonally wobbly road movie feel like it can live up to the expectations...

A sweet, solid first feature marbled with genuinely touching moments that make up for times when the siren call of sentimentality becomes a little too loud.

In this case, I was effortlessly won over.

The acts of the trip that, when put together, form the film are very well paced, with just about the right dosage of pain and humour to keep it balanced
