What movie did you all see?
23 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Personally, I thought that the movie was misinterpreted. Compared to the movies that are currently being produced with million dollar budgets this film comes across as raw and unpolished... But that was the point!! It was an independent film made almost three years ago and because of the lack of money and exposure it took all this time to get it into theaters. The movie was received well in the independent/artistic film sector and it deserved every positive comment it received. Not only was the soundtrack amazing but the acting was so profound and movie. This movie was a beautiful and realistic glimpse into the adversities of street life. Whether autistic, bipolar or a recovering addict there we learned so many different reasons people become homeless on the streets. What I loved most about this movie was the authenticity, and the reality that it transpired with out leaving the audience entirely helpful. I think it was artistic and beautifully done. It was moving an edgy...see it for yourself!!!
