| Not funny, but realistic story
The film "Funny story" by Michael Gallagher prompted me to write a review about this film primarily due to the realism of the story. One of the main features of this film is the maximum realistic presentation and attachment to what can and usually happens around us.

The main characters of the story Kim (Emily Bett Rickards) and Walter (Matthew Glave) at the very beginning of the story are quite similar, although there is a big difference in age between them. These characters have low moral principles: the absence of any care for loved ones, their families, the search for adventure on the side and love for casual relationships.

Realism shows is that when viewing the film the feeling that it's really the people who live near us. In big cities, these people do not immediately see until you get to know them better, although the film shows us that, even being in a close relationship, you do not always know who is standing in front of you.

The special moment it should be noted that if the character Walter is really beginning to understand the end of the movie all their sins and realize that he needs to change, that Kim even at the end of the film, knowing what she's been doing, trying to somehow mask all perfect, justifying himself and shifting responsibility to others. However, the last scene between her and her fiancée shows us that she has finally spoken the truth out loud, which I think is a big step for her. The end for the character was left open, but I believe she left those loved ones, whom she had caused so much pain, and began work on yourself. I want to believe that a person who has done bad things, but realized them, will begin to change and eventually become a truly worthy person.

It is worth noting excellent acting of Matthew Glave and Emily Bette (even in scenes where they don't speak, they all conveyed with one look and movement), for stories about stereotypes regarding minorities, for stunning views and, of course, for showing people who do terrible things and with whom, I think, many are unlikely to associate themselves, but they remind us that we need to look at ourselves in the mirror from time to time and think about who you are and what you do. However, I think the film is not for everyone.

10/10
