***This film is currently streaming on Netflix***
The film isn't without its share of melodrama and despite its short 70-minute runtime, the said melodrama wears a bit thin and grows repetitive, but Farmiga and Rosenfield do such a nice job of creating their characters and their relationship with one another that when the film ended I was won over a bit more than I thought I'd be. The lack of bells and whistles works in the film's favor for sure. Don't let the brevity of this review sway you into thinking I didn't appreciate 6 Years. While it isn't without a few faults, it's definitely one of the better college relationship dramas that have come along in the past several years.
The RyMickey Rating: B
