Cherry ★★★★★

i was admittedly nervous before clicking play on this, but those nerves immediately disappeared within the first minute, when i knew that tom holland was going to lead me through this sweeping story with such power and skill, unlike anything we’ve ever seen from him. the nuance of his performance completely blew me away, he is such a magnetic force on screen. the chemistry between him and ciara bravo was incredibly special and served as the anchor of this film.

i can see that some people might not enjoy the very specific stylistic choices that were made, but i personally found them to add to the story, especially after learning why they made those choices.

all in all, it’s one of those films that will be on my mind for a very long time.
