Kidding, this was truly such a hidden gem, someone recommended i watch it and i did, now i can't be more grateful. It's one of those films you find yourself still thinking about days after watching, i find myself tearing up a couple of times throughout the film, which is something i haven't done this entire year. Filled with charming and lovable characters, shot in a beutiful island with beautiful scenery, heartwarming story about love, family and friendship, now i find myself tempted to read the novel just to spend more time with those characters, i feel like a mini series formula would have been better for this adoptation of the novel though, rather than a 2 hours movie which leaves you just wanting more.
Anyway, i highly recommend this if you are tired of all the blockbuster movies like me and just want a simple light hearted movie to enjoy.
