    where to start? the good or the bad?
    Probably start with the bad and end on a high note.

    This is an obviously low budget film, and as such the 'effects' as all but non existent. most of the "magic" is just echoed vocals with absolutely no visual reference at all.
    the filming is janky as hell (no pun intended) with some scenes being so bad you can see a weird outline around the actors against a backdrop.

    ★★★½

    I will say it is definitely a unique film.
    There are two main lessons I believe you are supposed to learn here, the main one being the whole story of "sometimes the thing that makes you different is your greatest asset, and not to be feared/hidden away"

    The second is that "Sometimes what you want, isn't what you need."

    This is definitely a matter of style over substance. We've seen these stories told, We know whats probably going to happen.…
