MIX UP REVIEWS:
Daniel (Age 12) - ★
"I didn’t enjoy this movie.
The movie wasn’t bad it’s just not something that I would enjoy I felt like it didn’t have much story to follow along and it just felt like nothing really happened.
Overall I could recommend this movie to people who enjoy emotional movies but not really anyone else."
Jasmine (Age 14) - ★★★★
"This movie was brilliant, and I can definitely undertsand its Oscar buzz, the film delivers emotionally leaving you reaching for the tissues. Although, some of the sound was quite muffled in certain scenes where the characters were speaking English and there were no subtitles to help like in other parts of the film. These were only a few moments and did not take away from the altogether lovely film. The acting was superb. A must watch!"
Kim & Mum - ★★★
"Really moving, enjoyable film, possibly for the older generations. Slow burner, we appreciated the decor, costumes, set design - reminded us of things seen growing up. I thought the film had a palpable sense of longing and undercurrent of pain. Very slow burner. It's the alternate to Belfast."
