What a lovely surprise this was. I wasn't sure what to expect about a film where Aragorn (Son of Arathorn) raises his kids in the woods away from the unnatural world of modern day society.

It turned out to be one of the most touching and lovely indie films I've seen all year. Wonderful performances from everyone, well shot, oringal, engaging, well written and just sweet all round.

It covers a lot of themes extremely well, the importance of education, loss, meaning of life, love, everything. It was beautiful.

It's films like this I love, I just made me thing about just how bullshit everything is. Like, what does anything I do mean? In a good way though, not in an ironic, suicidal meme page way.
