Julia approaches Ann for the recipe to her cookie recipe. After sitting down for a moment, the two realize that their long-standing feud had run so long, that they forgot why they even disliked one another.
If' you're looking to compare this Netflix original to the cast of others that are gems from the company, you'll be disappointed. Candy Jar is a simple movie. It's a nice coming of age film with some light humor, a few great life messages, and a small love story thrown in.
And really, the overall life message of enjoying life and the journey is the best part about this film.
Again, I picked this movie out of the daunting Netflix catalog on a Thursday afternoon while soothing my newborn. This film doesn't try to be more than what it is, and that's what makes it a very entertaining watch.
