Excellent little film!
9 July 2007 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

I caught this once on TV many years ago, and waited for a few years to see it again on TV, and the second viewing confirmed my original impression - a cast of unknowns, headed by Norman Alden, made a beautiful small film that should be released on DVD as soon as possible. Alden played mostly heavies in the films I'd seen him in before, and this was a revelation - he was totally believable and very expressive with his movements, something talented big men can do like no others. The script is almost hyper-realistic, with a good feel for natural language, depending on other characters interactions with Andy to advance each set piece in the film. All in all, a great little independent film.
