Review:

I don’t know why I try and watch these movies. I knew going in it was going to be one of those depressing “real life” indie movies, but I wanted to watch it anyway. Some review somewhere said it had a lot of dark comedy and that’s all it took.

It was by no means as horrible as August: Osage County, it just wasn’t my cup of tea. There were funny moments and it was definitely a darker humor, but they were minor blips in a film about suicidal twins with self-destructive tendencies.

It wasn’t my kind of movie but it wasn’t a bad one. It ended on a hopeful note which was nice. Everything had burned down around them, basically, but they were finally learning some coping skills.

3/5
