An excellent independent film with strong performances
24 November 2005 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Cry Funny Happy is a film that demonstrates how an unknown director and group of actors with little more than desire can create a powerful and compelling story. The cast has magnetic chemistry that draws you deeper into this story of a circle of friends in the grips of personal crisis. The movement in Independent film production has given opportunities to talented casts and crews to demonstrate what is possible without the studio system. CFH is a obvious winner and has a cast,director, and visual style that will stay with you long after the film ends.

I have watched this film several times with different groups of friends. I'm amused how everyone has a fairly extreme point of view and seems best reviewed by people under 30 who still fight to understand their identity and personal journey.
