65/100

"You seek resolution because you are young, but you will understand this one day…"

I'm only 17, so I'm gonna need to rewatch this after I've been in a few more failed relationships. Till then: quite good.

What especially struck me was that the core relationship the film is centered around isn't one of love (though the ending hints at the possibility of it) so much as one of escape and distraction. Much of this actually feels like a lovers on the lam film; a gun even plays a key role!
