Year: 2017
Genre: Drama
Conclusion: 2/5
I couldn’t engage with this film. I had no time for any of the characters. This is from the same director who directed Gifted (2017) which I thoroughly enjoyed and also The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014) so this does show that he can be a good director. I found the whole pace of the film incredibly slow. The title of this film is taken from a Simon and Garfunkel song.
