Nia Peeples more beautiful than ever

Author: gordon clason ( from Kansas City, MO
14 March 2005

As Ms Peeples ages, her beauty is maturing and she is rapidly becoming one of the most attractive and accomplished leading ladies of the industry. The plot is interesting enough to keep you watching and intricate enough to keep you guessing. The music is smooth and mellow. For those who love smooth jazz, Bob Baldwin and Joe McBride on keyboard and Marion Meadows on sax contribute to a soundtrack which is compelling and sweet. I loved this movie. It is a refreshing change from action and chases and guns. The New Orleans locations gave the story a feel and look of authenticity which also contributes to the jazz atmosphere. A couple of intriguing plot twists at the end keep you guessing until the last scene.

This movie has a story line with actors that deliver.

Author: misterj0_jon from California
7 March 2004

This movie was a movie written for a film goer that has an appetite for a good story, smooth jazz, and actors that can deliver. The chemistry between Shoop Summers played by Antonio Fargas and Kenny Curtis played by Mister Jones was true to life. Being a jazz musician I enjoyed this film emensly. Mister Jones resembles Wesley Snipes in this film but his acting style is different. Nia Peeples nails Heather the fed up and some what hurt girlfriend of Adam Goodnight Cameron Smith. Needless to say for his first performance he was great. Also jazz pianist Joe Mc Bride was excellent as the comic relief in this dark dramatic film. I again say this film should have made it to the big screen.

Great movie, best low budget film I've seen.

Author: Pamela Goff from Prestonsburg, Kentucky
17 January 2002

The movie was great. With only 2.7 million dollars for budget, director, writer Mark W. Allen did and incredible job. Casting Nia Peeples and Antonio Fargas was the best thing he could have done. The brought Heather (Peeples) and Shoop (Fargas) a jazz musician ready to fade out of the lime light. New comer Cameron Smith does an excellent job playing Adam Goodnight, Shoop's music promoter and Heather's boyfriend.

I recommend that anyone who loves a movie for the acting ability and for an amazing story, this is the movie to watch.
