“Trees. Birds. Rivers. Sky.
Running with my Uncle Hec
This has been in my watchlist since forever and after watching (and disliking) Jojo Rabbit I was a bit standoffish about watching it, but to my surprise I absolutely loved it. It starts off a bit weak and with some weird writing, but it progressively gets better and better with each scene.
Julian Dennison is an absolute force in this film and makes everything ten times funnier. His chemistry with Sam Neil was fantastic and they both made it as fun as it is with their wonderful performances. Didn’t expect to like it as much as I did but now I regret not watching it sooner. A hilarious, heartfelt story and an amazing film.
