Little "GEMS" that must be seen!by definatelyalady | created - 24 Aug 2017 | updated - 2 weeks ago | Public
These are films I've come across that are surprising gems. They might not all be 10s but they do spark something inside or maybe just one of the performers stands out enough to start following their careers.This is how I've become the fan of some of Hollywood's biggest stars and hopefully these films will continue to make more big stars.
