I was moved
2 April 2003 | by (Bellevue, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I was moved by this film. I screened it at the Cleveland International Film Festival in March 2003. I loved the split-screen editing of the film. I loved being able to watch the actors react to each other as the other was speaking their lines. The film is so true. Haunting. Beautifully-acted. I hope to see the two leads, Jay Gillespie and David Rogers, move on to larger projects. Thank you for this experience.
