Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
This movie has some very powerful moments, especially with the three brothers. There is one scene in particular that stuck with me for days. If you’ve seen the film, you likely know which moment I’m talking about (“it only works if you close your eyes”). Man tears. However, the rest of the film isn’t all that great; it’s kind of scattered and lacks direction. I felt like the movie was trying to tell an important story, but got lost by focusing on the wrong parts.

Final Grade: C+
