Wow! What a fantastic movie that took me in directions I didn’t expect. From IFC Midnight is this gem of a murder-mystery crime drama of sorts with some amazing tension. I found myself literally biting my fingers (heh, I quit biting my nails years ago) and screeching curse words to cut the tension. I went into this one expecting to enjoy it but was pretty blown away by how it threw a wrench or two into the mix. When I rate something a 10 it means 1) It’s a favorite that I’ll watch over and over and am sure to recommend AND/OR 2) It added something new and interesting to a genre and surprised me. …

What a GEM of a feature!! If you’re someone that likes a good, family movie that is heartfelt and funny then WATCH THIS! While I feel that Netflix originals can be hit or miss, it’s definitely a hit. Now, when I love a movie I have no problem – in fact a desire – to watch it again soon. I watched this late at night and the next night I put it on again to show my husband. It was such a joy to share it with him and talk about it. It feels inspired by both The Iron Giant and some comedic timing and expressions similar toΒ Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs or Paranorman. …
