Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated R for some sexuality
This film has rare qualities. It is pensive, intelligent and looks for truths, not flash. It has depth rarely seen in english films. Mid-film though, I was wondering if it is going somewhere. Then I saw, it is not going it’s coming toward us. The story of a boy survivor arriving to normalcy, finally, with what he has, his loving ghosts.
