The Feels is a film about a bachelorette party with a twist, and it was one of the films I wanted to very much see at this years BFI Flare, as it had such a great female cast, subject matter and sometimes ill admit it you need a good laugh at BFI Flare.
The relationship between 3 generations of women means that this film will attract a wide audience and speak to many women. This is definitely a film I want in my collection and would love to see in the cinemas with a mainstream release.
A must see for every generation. Beautiful, funny and poignant.
