Mario Van Peebles,
I saw 12 films at the 2002 Fort Lauderdale Film Festival and Standard Time was by far my favorite.
In my opinion Isabel Rose has done a remarkable job of creating a polished and entertaining film with a low budget. The script and story, performances, music, costumes, and the wonderfully vivid and lush cinematography successful blend to make Standard Time such a pleasure to watch.
Hopefully Standard Time will secure U.S. distribution because I would love to see this movie released in theaters. I found it thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable and I would certainly see it a second time.
Andrew McCarthy is very appealing in this movie. Eartha Kitt also has a small, but very significant role. The rest of the cast is less familiar, but all gave quality performances.
