POSTERS

  • Poster: C

Review:

The poster makes this look like motivational claptrap. It's a visually pleasing but aesthetically bankrupt piece.

  • Trailer: C+

Review:

Once you see the poster, you pretty much have the general thrust of the film. The trailer doesn't do much to dissuade these thoughts, but does showcase that it isn't only American filmmakers who succumb to such mundanities.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
