    ★★★★½

    I loved the way the director decided to portray this relationship. A lot of still scenes, random moments, not linear, slow and static frames, heartbreak, romance and everyday life . So much was said in silence. So why am I teary eyed? Good question.

    Absolutely hate kids who bully others. And this movie is pretty relevant when it comes to destroying an innocent life through social media and fake narratives. Heartbreaking. Really loved the scenes with the mom. Meryll Soriano’s acting was impeccable.
