Essential viewing for Trachtenberg fans, v1.01
28 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

Along with Forever Together and Christmas In My Hometown, I rate this as the best of the early Trachtenberg features that I have, so far. I do not like to compare these with the series Pete, Pete and Buffy.

Forever Together as romantic Tracht. I rate it as the pinnacle, but the low budget is fairly obvious.

A Father's Choice is also low budget, but that does not show to such an extent. Here she is a disillusioned early teen whose reality is gradually becoming less putrid. It is quality, as is Forever, just it is not big budget type quality but a quality story.

My DVD is 4x3 NTSC.
