    "This was one that the significant other picked and i was not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. Love stories can usually be sappy glurge or overly depressing, this did neither. It does a marvelous job of culture clash, parental expectations and relationship compelxities. The overall tone of the movie is positive and the ending leaves you satisfied, definitely worth seeing."

    "This is one of those quirky relationship movies that can really grab you. I think a lot of people can relate to the storyline about a man who likes to keep the same routine while his wife always dreams of trying new things and expanding her horizons. I've watched quite a few Amazon original movies, and this is one of the best ones I've seen so far. "

    "The best original Amazon movie I've yet to see, Last Flag Flying deals with the troubles that befall a Vietnam veteran when he wishes to have his Iraq war veteran son interred in Arlington. As a war veteran myself, I found it very difficult yet powerfully moving to watch this movie. Anyone would likely enjoy it, but only veterans will get all the nuances of this amazing movie."
