    Where do I begin. Performances by Radcliffe and company were passable and believable. Story was a bit contrived and little too much at times. Cinematography
    Was fantastic though with some of the most unique shot ideas I have ever seen in a film. Decent twist in story but not enough from me wanting to watch this again.

    Wish I Was Here


    An honest interpretation of the struggles of a real life family. Surprisingly funny and touching at the same time. Great performances and cinematography , and a refreshing take on religion,love, and life.

    Great performances by Tatum, Ruffalo, and Carel but poor pacing, lack of character development , and an anticlimactic ending make this film lackluster. I was never bored by this film but was never excited either.

    I can't say this is an easy film to watch, but it is an experience. The lack of dialogue makes this film a pure cinematic and visual masterpiece. Acting is great, and believable, and it is a gorgeous film to behold. The themes that run throughout are of family, questioning are own existence and the balance of grace and nature. This film is perfectly executed and while it may not be for everyone will stick with you for days and weeks to come.
