This film produced a flurry of emotions from me. During the first act I kept saying “awww” as it is incredibly cute. The two actors felt like a very realistic and sweet couple and reminded me of being in the first throws of love.

The film goes up and down, in and out, backwards and forwards, roundabout and back again and I went with it every step of the way.
