It seemed to have a ‘Marmite’ effect, you either loved it or hated it.

Here are the comments:

  • Thought provoking insight into a young person coming to terms with he sexuality amidst uncertainty.
  • Complex and compelling.
  • Terrific photography. What is male, female, young, old? Still waters run deep.
  • Brilliant cinematography. Great casting. Very interesting.
  • Disturbing, full of emotion, conflicted ones and true ones. A truly beautiful film.
  • The nuclear family goes nuclear! Captured the complexity if a complicated situation very well.
  • Whatever happens – Life goes on!
  • Very good. Thanks.
  • Excellent acting/cinematography – took a while to work out relationships – 2nd half seemed to move at a faster pace – clever directing.
  • Not a poor film, appreciate the sentiment but had to watch. ‘Jones’ was not a caring character. Liked the daughter.
  • Worse film I have ever seen and I didn’t even see it all. Now that is saying something.
  • Lasted until day 4.

Please remember if you leave a comment that I have to be able to read them to be able to type them up to post on the website. They are becoming more difficult to read each time.
