    ★★★★

    From the opening the script is different from other movies in this genre.

    What starts out in a vacuum for a conflicted J Balvin, who wanted the spotlight but didn’t see the responsibility coming on the other side, morphs into an artist discovering the power of music and art as an escape from the stresses of a world when he finds influence from his fans.

    There’s some convenient looking the other way by the adults that make this live in an alternate dimension, but it works. Leah Lewis gives us a grounded glimpse into the life of someone penned in to a life where they don’t feel at home, while simultaneously helping others hide their own selves.

    The theme of trusting your…
