“Iu0026#39;ve just finished this film, and with tears running down my cheeks from the feel good-ness of it all, Iu0026#39;ll attempt to type out this review…if youu0026#39;re a hopeless romantic, or idealist, this movieu0026#39;s for you. As I am one, if not both of those, I see the takeaway (that many of the reviewers here seem to be missing the point of) being that you canu0026#39;t spend all of your time and efforts romanticizing or idealizing a perfect life or even the u0026#39;perfectu0026#39; you, because you miss out on the real one when you do. Plus, as in the case of the movie, when you do romanticize your life or who you could be, you might miss out on something beautiful thatu0026#39;s a part of your life already. Itu0026#39;s lovingly quirky, the cinematography is wonderful, the soundtrack is lovely, the story is detailed, the characters are not one-dimensional, thereu0026#39;s a naturalness between the characters and overall humanness that you can just feel throughout the film. And overall itu0026#39;s just a really sweet movie about a girl whou0026#39;s trying to figure out her life and her relationship. Give it a shot, you might really like it like I did :)”
