Let's Hope It Finds a Distributor
20 May 2001 | by (Waynesville, NC) – See all my reviews

From what I understand, not many people have been able to see this film, and I am one of the lucky few who have. Sean Bridgers, one of the main talents behind this film, came to show the movie to one of my film classes at Western Carolina University, and it was a real treat. Teaming up with actor and director Nick Searcy was something good, because with him at the helm the feelings of Appalachia and southern boyhood were captured nicely and accurately. Last I heard, Bridgers and Searcy are holding out for some sort of theatrical release, and I hope it will happen for them. this movie is better than most of the popcorn fare that we have to choose from, and for that alone it deserves to be seen. Bravura performance from Terry Nienhuis in this one...his was an electrifying death scene.
