Robert Benavides Jr.,
Joyful Partaking is a darkly comic, ultimately triumphant look at a day in the life of a suburban American neighborhood. Among the residents is a TV weatherman whose failure to forecast a freak storm has led to personal tragedy. Interwoven with the funny, touching stories of his neighbors, this award-winning feature shows how small acts of kindness or carelessness can change a life forever.
One of the best Independent Films we've ever seen.
We saw Joyful Partaking at Telluride Indiefest 2001. It was the last film shown at the festival and the longest, two disadvantages going in and despite that, we were RIVETED. The quality of the script, the performance of the actors and the pacing of the film was top notch and a real testament to the talent of William Moreing, who wrote and directed it. The universal message of this film is delivered with a clever mix of poignancy and humor and the story is one that everyone can relate to. It's not surprising that Joyful Partaking will be screened at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. It is truly a work of art and we highly recommend it. Sincerely, K&L
