Michael Dequina

The romance is entirely convincing and awkward and many times cute, but the story was stretched a little too thin for my liking.

Went on a Zooey movie bonanza. This one really hit home to me. I could imagine the characters being in real life. Seeing them as everyday people walking the… More
