Such a great film - Saw it at the cinema and had no real expectations but was blown away by it, Great twist at the end too.
So. I rented this film after seeing the cover (cliche right?) and not having heard anything about it. When I read the synopsis I was really surprised to see who the protagonist (and writer) was, a former crush from a certain 90s band *ahem*. I didn't have any expectations but I was really surprised by how good the film was, with a strong cast and complex stories. I have to say the little girl who played Tara really stole the scenes she was in, brilliant. The green card issue aside, I think the film portrays well common issues that people have to deal with, dealing with grief, complex family and friend structures, difficult relationships and choices whatever your sexuality, and simply dealing with your feelings at times you don't want to. If anything I think people will have been in at least one situation in their life where they can empathise with the unhappiness and confusion Jack was going through towards the end of the film. I also really liked the nods to things British :) (marmite, Newcastle Brown and Hob Nobs) All in all, I thought it was a great film, I thought the cast was great and I'd recommend this to people, thank you David Ross
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. It was worth the wait!
It tells the story of Jack (David W Ross) - a young British guy just trying to live his life in New York, being a friend/supporter to his sister-in-law and the gay uncle to his niece. He marries his best friend to enable him stay in the US and to get his green card. Everything changes for him when he meets and falls in love with Mano.
The writer has done a fantastic job with this movie, its a heart-warming story, highlighting some important issues.
Great cast - you won't be disappointed.
