Eh. Pretty to look at but very thin on substance.

My partner and a bunch of other people I know worked on this! A lot of the people in the credits were college undergraduates when the film was in production, and the filmmakers are in their 20s.

At first I was expecting to dislike it, assuming that it was relying on mental illness to provide a thin backdrop to a fantasy adventure. By the end though I'd found it to be quite sensitive and beautiful.

I'm surprised this didn't get more attention. When I finally got around to viewing it in its entirety I found it well-executed and touching.
