      Ramesh M Well done, but a slug of reality. Still, enjoyed it. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Audience Member It lives up to its title - a bit dark - but life can be that way. Highly recommended Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The cast is phenomenal and though the subject matter is dark at times, there are plenty of comedic and touching moments that make this movie a must see. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member I loved this movie. It's a little dark, but with an enormously uplifting ending and amazing performances from everyone involved! A must see! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member This film is a must see! It is real and raw but also beautiful at the same time. This is a brilliant and well written film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Emotional roller coaster that leaves you speechless. Kind of a departure for Breckin Meyer but he shows he has some serious drama chops with his role as "Casey." Emily Kinney ("Beth" from the Walking Dead) really does an amazing job as does her on-screen daughter, Giselle Eisenberg. Really hope to see more of all three of these actors because they are tremendous. Lots of other pretty memorable smaller parts, including Allen O'Reilley as the attorney.

      Andy Klein FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) On some level, it's too dark to be satisfying. Jul 22, 2022 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation The acting here isn’t so much bad as dissonant, as if nobody here is aware “Enormity” is as charmless as it is. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 7, 2022 Full Review Lorry Kikta Film Threat It's a high-quality, intelligent, well-written film. It is just a very big drag and isn't something to play at parties. Go in knowing that, and you won't be disappointed. Rated: 6.5/10 Apr 16, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
