The imdb score is complete murder compared to the actual quality of the film
This is a bland, tasteless, uninspired, cliche and infuriating movie. When you think it can't surprise you anymore it hits you with the most cringe acting and melodrama you'll see in a while. Completely uninspired work, out of focus (literally and metaphorically), overall bleak and the sadness displayed couldn't even stir some pity inside of me, it just went through with how fabricated and fake it felt.
There's nothing to learn here other that not the most talented people get to be in the spotlight. Viewing it from this perspective can be inspiring.
