Relevant, Slow, Quirky, Cliched

See it if You want to support young artists in their effort to share an all too familiar story about our common humanity. Nice ensemble.

Disappointing, Intense, Thought-provoking, Edgy

See it if You enjoy end of the world / society breaking down plays

Don't see it if You wanted to see something happy or uplifting
