How does love alter our lives' trajectories?

A film that takes it's time with it's character study. The acting is strong and the chemistry between the leads is palpable. Sentimental, sweet, complicated and full of pent up energy and anger. The film delves into many emotions as it meanders through how love can alter our lives' trajectories. The film allows space for intimacy to grow and for the audience to have maximum buy-in. A film that is geographically specific as well as locked in to its intimacy between the characters and the audience...a stunner.
