Thoughts on Ribbon
Thoughts – Ribbon is a drama that shows a pair of siblings that are going through different stages of their lives, with Michael dealing with changes at work, while Maggie doesn’t want to accept going into the adulthood stage of her life. It will cause friction between the pair, as they will get to learn important life lessons for the both of them. This is a low budget film that will use the next to no budget to give us the full character development, with the two supporting characters having just as much of an impact on the leads after coming into their lives. This story will have plenty of messages about finding your place in the world, learning what is important going forward and taking the chases given too you.
Final Thoughts – Ribbon is a nice life drama about siblings finding their place in the world.
