Outstanding!
30 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautifully shot, skillfully acted, this indie production is outstanding. Ed Italo is the real deal, Phil Donlon does tremendous work in his supporting role and Justina Machado is a one of the best Latina actors in the biz hands down. And no, I'm not related to anyone in this production.

And now, after attempting to submit my comments, I'm being told I need more text in order to "qualify." No problem. This indie piece reminds filmmakers how rich Chicago neighborhoods are for production. You can't make Toronto look this good, I promise you. If you run into Ed Italo out west, ask him for a screener of this film. Then ask him to shoot your feature.

Cheers

Mac
