Ashton Sanders alone is worth watching this for.
11 April 2019 | by nuxwilliamsSee all my reviews

You know a movie does a good job when it disturbs you days afterwards. The tension builds slowly until breaking point and then sadly it just kinds of peters off in a totally different direction however Ashton's performance from beginning to end was excellent. The whole cast bought depth to their characters, no matter small or big their onscreen time was. The scenery was really well thought out and it draws you in. The settings felt intimate and it exemplified the rawness of each character.
