Nutella’s Recommendation Corner 1~

Hi hi ^u^ First off, Happy Holidays to everyone~ So I see that everyone around is falling into either one of two camps right around now: very happy, or not so happy (and if you’re Kappy, you fall into your own category of injured and over-worked *hug*). Either way, I’m stepping in with a solution for you all~ It comes in the form of a couple of cuties from the land of mangoes (no, not India): the Phillipines~~

Wow. What a though-provoking movie. It’s not about romance, superpowers, or horror. It is a social commentary, addressing the power and manipulation of social media and internet bullying.

I was clearing out my harddrive when I stumbled upon this movie. It’s been in the movie folder since last year and I remember downloading it because of the fresh faces and pensive title. I did not read the synopsis or any spoilers but experienced viewers will figure out the ending when the first hint is dropped. Annnnnddd I’m still crying as I write this review. It’s a movie that will stay with you long after you’ve finished it. An achingly sense of loss envelops you because these kids are untainted and raw in their performances, binding you into their plights and struggles.
