Touching realistic romance in a foster care institution

By jdowney3

A really well-acted story about teenagers in a foster care facility, with a complicated romance between two of the staff weaving throughout the movie. Not a slow moment in the whole movie, and probably a very realistic portrayal of what it must be like for the residents and the staff of such a facility.

Beautifully written and brilliantly executed. Flawless. The most inspirational film of the year. Not flashy with tons of bells and whistles, but pure heart, soul and emotion. You will fall in love with these kids.

My husband and I share over 40 years experience in the environment portrayed in this movie. Everything about it was very realistic. The script and acting felt just like my experience in these types of facilities - moving, frustrating, devastating, and uplifting. It held my full attention every second. I can't wait to see more from this writer/director, crew, and cast!
