was at the edge of my seat the whole movie!
30 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

This was the first raw, real, awesome movie I had seen in a long while. The characters are so relatable, almost like friends you once had when you were younger. There was not one point in the movie where I became bored (very unusual for me as I usually can't sit still). There are also some awesome shots of Montreal, my hometown, so I can't help to love the movie even more.
