If Life Gives You Lemons ★★★½

The film doesn’t do well to land some open-ended stories at its conclusion - with questions of the girlfriend, his football career and future left unanswered. But as I said at the beginning, I don’t think this does an injustice to the film. We are offered closure to the story that demanded it most within the narrative, and that's what counts. If you want to watch an interesting filmic portrayal of life, choices and relationships - this is your film. Strap in - it’s not necessarily your fun-loving film favourite, but it is a real and raw coming of age story.
