Our Take

7.5
Kim To

After being held captive his whole life, a man sets out to finish the only show he’s ever seen. Thoughtfully written with a creative cast; it is not a film you would expect to laugh at and enjoy so thoroughly with such an unconventionally dark premise. However, it is a hilarious, wholesome, and loving film that will leave your heart feeling warm.

The movie catches your interest quickly. The plot is interesting and the humor works. A little dark but incredible wholesome. Definitely a title that deserves more attention.
