One of finest films we have ever seen
30 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My son, a film student and now visual effects artist in LA, brought this film home from the Heartland festival several years ago. Our family was blow away by it. We have seen it several times and shown it to others. It remains one of the finest, thought provoking films we have ever seen. We always wondered what happened to Scott and just recently looked up his profile. We did that because the daughter of a famous actress dropped by our home and we told her about it. She was excited, because she had auditioned for one of Scott's movies.

We wish Scott continued success in his career and thank him for making such an important film.
