So I was recently skimming through Netflix and realized, damn, there's shit for movies on this fucking thing. But then I found this incredible movie called Neverwas. At first glance it may look like a typical kid movie about fairies and unicorns, but never judge a movie by its cover. This movie was absolutely stunning in nearly every way.
It tells the tale of a son who's father wrote a book about him. His father had a number of mental illness's and eventually was administered into a mental facility. Shortly after being released, his father couldn't bare the depression, and committed suicide. Several years later the son Zackery, who prefers to go by Riley, comes back to the mental institute a well educated psychiatrist who is looking for answers to his past. Riley meets a patient named Gabriel at the hospital who had been in and out of mental hospitals for 40 years, and had been mute for that entire time. But one day Gabriel uttered 4 words, "I knew it was you!" and then ran off. From there the movie really takes off into an interesting twist, and an explosive ending. 5 stars from me!
If you love mystery movies, this is the movie for you.
