A different way of telling a story
This is one of the few movies I've ever seen where the whole audience broke into spontaneous, loud applause a third of the way in.
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
This film is so real. It treats its characters with so much care and sensitivity.
