Thoughts on Confession
Thoughts – Confession is drama thriller that will see how three people will come together in a church to finally let the truth out, which will give us a story that is filled with twists and turns along the way. This is an interesting look at people wanting to give away their truths, while having a gritty cop like drama going on within it. It shows people may live with regrets, which they will always find themselves struggling to adapt too. The performances from the three leads are great, making themselves come off as an engaging style, while keeping everything within the walls of the church. This might not be everything you are expecting, as it is a film that is focused more on the discussions going on with everything.
Final Thoughts – Confession is an interesting discussion-based film, around mistakes we can make.
