I caught this movie when it made its UK premier at Glasgow Film Festival late February and I was impressed (watch out for my review sometime this week) in what I saw especially it been Drew Barrymore debut directed movie. I shouldn’t have really been surprised if you’ve been around movies all your life and your godfather is Steven Spielberg you should know the odd fiming trick or two.
