Simply fantastic
6 February 2003 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Independent Filmmakers Conference last winter with a few of my friends. When we screened this movie, it made the whole trip worthwhile. This film was brilliantly directed and acted. It made shooting with a DV look excellent. The film really got into the characters through the various aspects in which it was filmed. I really felt connected to this film. I laughed. I cried. I thought that this would be another run of the mill drug movie, but this was definitely a great twist to a seemingly old topic. It was definitely worth seeing again and again.
