Deep and Rich Film
19 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jack & Ella blew me away. It's an independent video, and the look is professional, as is the sound. I think it's not the director's first feature... I could be wrong. This film is from Canada, though it really could be anywhere in North America.

The main female leads were outstanding, especially Amy Sloan. The secondary characters were also excellent.

Keesal's work reminded me of other ensemble directors, like Robert Altman, and P T Andersen. The editing and sound work were full of imagination, and the camera work was very edgy. I hope that Brenda Keesal will weave many more tales!
