| Good Enough
For such a strong theme, the movie didn't manage to leave an impact. It chose to present Starr's story, but failed to portray her as well. The story is dealing with an issue that is currently finding its way to the global spotlight and shocked the world. However, the movie only present things and doesn't dig deeper. Other than that, and the many plot holes, like Starr's past, the movie had some great performances and the pace was fast.

King: He's name's seven, what's his middle name? Eight?


When driving in King's car there is a clock visible on the dash when King looks back to Starr. The time varies each time the clock is seen, with minutes passing when 1 sentence is spoken, and then the last sentence happens 10 minutes before the last but one sentence.
