It's good!
26 May 2018 | by edge547See all my reviews

It seems like a lot of people rated this film poorly, but let me tell you: they are wrong! It's a very good film. It's fun and original. Great camerawork, not too long, and always entertaining. It is based on somebody's dream. The director, Lily Baldwin, plays the main character and does a knockout job in both roles. I knew nothing about this movie going in, and I didn't realize that the lead actress was also the director until more than halfway through the film when her character licks up milk off a countertop. I said to myself: "no actress would lick it up that way unless she was the director." And then the credits rolled and it turned out I was right.
