Review:

I got 30 seconds into the Trailer and knew that I had to watch this film. It really didn't disappoint. I'd put it up there with films like Super or American Splendor. There are certain films that you can enjoy but know that you could live without, this isn't one of those films.

I loved every character in this except for the younger James at certain moments because he is just so infuriating. He can be having the perfect moment and just ruin it in an instant.

The film is about love and friendship, it is a truly romantic film along the lines of Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. It's a person torn between his life's work and the love of his life. It's got laugh out loud moments but I wouldn't call it a Comedy. It's just a great film.

I took a star off a perfect score because there was a slight moment in the film towards the end that I didn't think was necessary. It doesn't take away from the film but it felt a little forced. I loved this film though and I can see me watching it many times in the future.
