Twenty-two year old Steve is on top of the world. He has just graduated college, he has a beautiful girlfriend, Jane, and a publisher has picked up his first novel. Steve's best friend, Sean, on the other hand, hasn't been so lucky. A car crash has cut short his promising baseball career, and with his dream of playing in the Major Leagues destroyed, Sean turns to alcohol. His shiftlessness and his drinking have begun to jeopardize his relationship with his sultry girlfriend, Tracy, with whom Steve is secretly infatuated. Seduction strikes Steve and Tracy, and Steve and Sean's lives may never be the same again. Written by
I saw the premiere of Never Among Friends last year in New Jersey, and thought that the film was quite an accomplishment, especially considering the restraints and low budget that accompany an independent movie. It was also interesting to be able to see the film before the final editing was done. The director was very open to critiques and was using the audience's reaction to help him figure out the final presentation, which was very cool. While I've read several negative comments on this site, they really have no basis. For a young director and somewhat inexperienced cast, the movie was a great success. It was very entertaining, and well worth my money. Also, and I read this comment several times as well, the actor who played Sean stood out dramatically. He is extremely talented and made his character very believable. I'm sure we'll see him in many more movies in the future.
I just saw that Never Among Friends will be screened in a film festival in Philadelphia, and since it's not on DVD yet, I think I'm gonna make the trip to see it again.
