Opening wide in theaters.
I know it's been a weird year and there haven't been nearly as many movies released as there are in a typical year, but this is one of my favorite films of the year. And I think it would still be one of my favorites if this were a normal year.
This film will have you doubled over in laughter one minute and ugly crying the next. It is wonderfully told, beautifully shot, and filled with deep characters.
This film deals with mental illness in an interesting way. Personally, I loved it, but I know people that hated it. It is obviously just a matter of taste as to how you feel about it. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say any more about it. You'll just have to judge it for yourself.
The best aspect of this movie is how it perfectly shows the effects of mental illness on the person, but it also shows the effects on their loved ones as well. If you or someone you love is dealing with mental illness this film may help you understand how the people around you are feeling. For that reason alone this is a movie worth seeing.
I'm also a sucker for first love stories and underdog stories. This movie combines both of those, so I have no choice but to love it. This isn't the kind of film that will be winning awards, but it is one that can touch your heart and move you. And, to me, that is even more important than winning a trophy.
