Gramercy
Absorbing, Intense, Thought-provoking

Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You've ever been in a play, like Monty Python, or British comedies. You'll laugh until you cry and want to see it more than once.

Don't see it if You hate English accents, slapstick Buster Keaton type humor, or have never seen a play.

Edgy, Thought-provoking, Disappointing
