What are people saying?

  • Nancarrow's rating of the film The Boutique

    Romances, business relations, friendships and boats are but pieces refashioned to the compartments of time. Wonderfully summarized by the museum trip; those admired, appreciated, or remembered versus those that are forgotten or ignored. Tender moments of authenticity coincide with the abrasive fluctuations of our realities. The race can be trilling and exhausting. Keep shifting.
