A fascinating, character-driven tragicomedy that showcases Clark Gregg as a capable writer and director and plays to the strengths of every actor.

This is about a talent agent for children who is really struggling, down on his luck and finds a new talent who is truly mind blowing.

It is a small movie, but when it focuses tightly on the characters there are some quite exciting moments to be found.

Business is running slow and to make things worse, his most promising clients are getting poached by his "arch enemy" Aldo (Sam Rockwell).

There are funny scenes, heart wrenching scenes, confusing scenes.

Big budget blockbusters can be fun at times but they're often too formulaic, which I find boring.

It plays with the expectations of the audience and the stereotypes of such movies and ends up being something completely unexpected and thought provoking.

It does it in an entertaining way, both darkly comedic as well as suspensefully dramatic.

This was an enjoyable movie, any way you look at it.

The story takes an unexpected twist which really puts our hero to the test regarding how far he should go to protect the young girl who has put all her faith in him.

You are on the outside, trying to understand and that makes for an absorbing story.

His talent is impressive and every actor in the film was just as intriguing.
