Short Review: 100 Words or Less (no spoilers)
I wasn’t expecting this movie to be so good. I was surprised by how much I liked it. The film has a great cast, terrific characters, some awesome performances, and a script that perfectly captures the feel of the early 70’s and yet still resonates today.

Final Grade: B+
