Following the world premiere at Sundance Film Festival 2017 at the Eccles theatre during the Q&A, the cast were asked what attracted them to the project. Mark Hamill talked about how much he liked the script and the originality of the story, but also joked: 'Also, I actually had lines. You know, that's always a bonus for me'. This is a reference to the fact that all of his lines were cut from Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). See more »
I went into this without knowing anything about it, and I think you should do the same, its a really weird movie that could have gone completely wrong if it would have fallen into the wrong hands, but the people behind this really wanted to tell this peculiar story.
Its pretty enjoyable, very original, well made, with likable characters and really good performances. It could have been really dumb and obnoxious but almost every aspect of it its done carefully so it doesn't fall into the same trap many irritating movies fall with these subjects and ideas. It dragged a little bit towards the middle and its somewhat predictable but none of that ruins the movie as a whole.
An interesting movie about passion and nostalgia, and how it could affect your life in a huge way. Like John Waters said "Without obsession, life is nothing."
