Smart European style little film
14 December 2009 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

This is clearly a low budget indy, but it is very well acted and atmospheric. I really liked it, especially the sense of intimacy! The performances by Sandy Baron, who appeared on a number of SEINFELD episodes as Jack Klompus, co-director and writer Laurie Tayor-Williams, also a SEINFELD alum (Risa Costanzo), and DV DeVincentis, are all mysterious and naturalistic. Directors Taylor-Williams and Merce Williams, a married couple, are to be commended for making a small character driven European style film in New Jersey or Long Island, some suburb of New York anyway. There is almost a Hopper-esquire feel to the locations.
