Hilarious and Touching
18 September 2019 | by jc-999-591106See all my reviews

Saw this after it won Peoples Choice award at TIFF. One of the perks for being a TIFF volunteer, a great deal of fun (volunteering at TIFF and this movie). I loved Sam Rockwell, Taika Waititi, the 2 young male leads and the whole story. It had me laughing from the beginning. It also contains a great message, we are all human and have real value. It had great pacing and was thoroughly entertaining. Congrats to everyone involved in this great project.
