Millennial romantics are sure to enjoy this sweet student film. It's a modern day love story that begins on social media. It is easy to understand and relate to the technology used in the film - primarily Face Time. I enjoyed that this film takes place in two different parts of the world and has a Spanish speaking character. That aspect of the film is highly enjoyable and makes this film unique. The dialogue is simple. There are English subtitles when Victoria speaks Spanish. Actually, Victoria steals the show. I wanted the other main character, Payton to learn more Spanish and more about Victoria's culture. But, both characters are enjoyable and their story is sweet and simple. It leaves you hoping for a happy ending for the two! There are some issues regarding the story, such as unanswered questions and not enough is show about the progression of their relationship, such as struggles, milestones or even any individual character growth. However, the story flows pretty well. I wanted more dialogue between the two characters, Payton and Victoria instead of having music play during some of their FT conversations. The cinematography and lighting are simple and the sets are appropriate, They are predominately Payton's and Victoria's bedrooms. Although a lot of the film takes place over FaceTime, it is surprisingly clear. This piece would fit well in a youth and family film festival because it's relevant to contemporary youth culture. I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to ages 13 to 18, possibly adults. Reviewed by Chandler D. and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Adult Jurors.
When Payton Harris and Victoria Hernandez meet over Twitter, the two must overcome an overbearing sister, financial difficulties and a language barrier in order to meet, in person, for the first time.
