The Guardian gave the film five stars out of five and called it an “engrossing and exalting experience”. The Hollywood Reporter also praised the film but noted it was “very slow and ponderous.” The film was really well-made and I loved how all the characters were portrayed to look like they were in their late twenties, but still acted very childishly at times which showed that it’s fine because we’re just kids inside right? Everyone loves a bit of drama! Overall it was so good, if you haven’t watched this yet then definitely do! You won’t regret it. It is such an amazing movie with lots of lessons learned from watching it too.
