A movie about being alone, impossible choices, and forgiveness

Worthy: Passengers (Movie)

This is not a movie for critics. Who likes a critic anyways? They’re close-minded. If you’re like me and are naturally critical with movies, turn off your inner critic before watching this. I did and saw it as a lovely, thought-provoking story.
