Year: 2021
Genre: Adventure, Drama and Fantasy
Conclusion: 4/5
I actually enjoyed this. I did see this on Amazon but I think to get the full experience it is really a cinematic film and would have made more of an impression on me. I think Dev Patel is brilliant in this and perfectly cast. He makes the role look so easy but has quite a complicated task of getting it right. I thought it was very well directed by David Lowery. I also enjoyed the cinematography. The whole film has a sense of mystery to it. It is also about discovering who you are. Just some of the themes in this are courtesy, Christianity and the importance of truth. I found this to be a very powerful film.
