The movie lacks humour which makes it hard to watch the movie till the end. The movie talks about topics like bullying, diversity and rape. Although, the movie will let down your expectations, especially in the climax. It's very underwhelming. It's an adaptation of Jennifer Mathieu's novel 2017. Overall, it's an average movie and a one time watch.
