    Even though this was at Sundance 2014, I'm counting it as a 2017 because of it's time of release on Netfilx.

    Anyway, this was a pretty good film with an excellent performance from John Boyega, a solid story that moves along nicely, directing that's good, and a ending that isn't happy but does it come across some of the dramatic points across.

    Nothing special or complex, but still worth checking out. 86 mins anit that bad.
