They live in an apartment which is situated just above their small theatre.

The film is a refreshing comedy including all silly and delicate comedy scenes. It is entertaining and quite amazing with its storyline. An alluring and charming new York tale that reveals a shocking truth about the two girls’, Jackie and Rachel’s mother whom they assumed to be dead.

The movie includes many comedy and humor scenes in spite of this, it also concludes some tragedic scenes which are although comedic in nature.
It with its unique and engaging story, wonderful acting, and powerful direction allures the audience is a great way. The cinematography and filming are amazing. There are some moments that are somehow not that engaging but ya apart from these scenes, the movie was amazing and enjoyable.
The script captivates and demonstrates the underneath of each character without being depicted in a specific way. The film concludes a good talent for displaying the characters and story in an unbelievable way.
