One of those films that really touches you and shot entirely in 35mm (apart from the final sequence which was shot on an iPhone). Every scene and shot looks like a photograph, it's a visually stunning piece. It's amazing to think most of the players in this, with the exception of William Dafoe, who delivers a great performance, had never really acted before this outing.
Human and touching, it really draws you in. At times upbeat and uplifting, all whilst dealing with a subject and class of people it would have been easy to sensationalise.
The end scene made me cry out loud. I won't spoil it by giving my spin on it but it's a trip as it talks from the 6 year old kid's headspace.
Went straight ahead and played it for a second time because it was so good.
Director Sean Baker's one to watch.
9 out 10 popcorns from me.
