It is a realistic film but it was so long and di not finish the film..God knows what's the ending. doesn't seem to have one...

well crafted ART

Reviewer: Bucky BarnsDate: 2014-07-22

This indie movie is close to perfect; It depicts a boy growing into a man in a very personal way. This story of a child's life feels natural and the great script adds to the experience. the only let down is the sometimes off child acting.

Only watch if you like this kind of movie. For me this was only marginally more interesting to watch than Rachel Getting Married with Anne Hathaway. At times I was wishing for the movie to end. Any deeper message was drowned out during the 3 hours.

Hidden Gem

Reviewer: Drakey_boiDate: 2014-07-21

The coming of age film is just outstanding;combining the right amount of humour, heartbreak and memorable moments. The magic of this film creeps up on you and leaves you blown away. This film isn't to be missed, it's truly spectacular!
