Great Movie!
17 February 2016 | by Critter47See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie, its quite easy to get lost in the depth of emotions each character goes through. The Lives We Lead covers a breadth of life's challenges and it flows naturally from each moment to the next without feeling clichéd or overly done. Some of the themes are quite heavy however I found that the uplifting soundtrack is quite reassuring of better times ahead. I liked how the characters cover many aspects of life and I could relate to each character in many of their decisions. My favourite characters were Edith and Kerrod because they played there roles very well and I found myself more attuned to their stories. Overall The Lives We Lead is a great movie and I highly recommend you buy a copy and watch it.
