Raviv Ullman and Bailey Carr infuse their narrations with wonder and awe befitting a tale full of strange and beautiful things. Steeped in magical realism, it's the story of a girl who grows roses from her wrists and turns pumpkins to glass and a boy who paints moons and keeps secrets. A blossoming romance ensues. Ullman's tone is one of reverence, as if he's delivering a ballad oft recounted, while Carr's is one of desperate yearning. Their approaches are well balanced and reflect the way the narrative is shared equally between both characters. This mix of quiet and passion serves the story, which is fast paced but also possesses a poetic quality. A rich, layered performance.
