This is my first film review as I’m not good at watching films as my concentration just goes everywhere but I watched this film fully and I want to write about it.
What’s the film called?
Who’s the director and producer?
Oli Regan & Carol Moran
Who’s the writer?
What’s the film about?
It’s about mental health. Rasing awareness for male mental health as in media today. There’s not much about male mental health. In this film, there was 3 men portraying their mental health battles and what stigma they faced when they opened up about their battles and the demons they were all facing in society as being a male with mental illness.
The cast of fractured minds?
Oli Regan, Nadine Burton, John Bagnal, Joshua Frater-Loughlin, Millie Thew, Luke Day-Hill, Redd Lilly Roche, Reece Palmer-Lacey and Alfie Lewis.
Would I recommend this film?
Of course I would.
How would I rate this in 2 words?
Just so you know, it’s okay not to be okay you know, even the happiest person in the universe has their bad days. You can get through this dark hole. I believe in you.
You are loved. You are worth the fight. You are more than your illnesses, you can fight this I believe in you. You are flawless. You are fabulous. You aren’t alone. You are amazing and I’m proud of you all.
