Although I don't really enjoyed the movie the actors really made the movie believable. In almost every scene there emotions seemed real. I think they chose good actors to play each characters . Overall this movie was an okay movie I would not pay to see this movie at least not in theaters. I would rate this movie a 7/10 and a C.
