6 BALLOONS* (Video Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

6 Balloons—
an educating entertainment piece—turns its ‘WOW’ on with its unusual, factual presentation. Educates by means of Dave Franco and Abbi Jacobson and turns itself into a terrific watch. The conclusion of the movie is blunt. Kudos to Director Marja-Lewis Ryan for daring to show life as it currently is for thousands of people.
