I reviewed the book this film is based on for NPR a few years ago so I was eager to see how it translated to the big screen. And can I say I thought it translated quite well!
It’s a sweet fairy-tale kind of story and it’s also the kind of story that the Mixed Remixed Festival loves to celebrate: a story about our racial and cultural connectedness. I don’t think I’m spoiling it by saying that the story features not one but two interracial relationships. And well, it’s just a lovely story about longing, and dreaming and what it really means to make your dreams come true. Check it out! I think you’ll like it a lot!–Heidi Durrow
