This film is very, very solid. The acting was absolutely great (Finn Carter's superb performance as a fed up wife, and probably Hudson's best performance to date). Most importantly, the screenplay was cohesive and didn't waste a line - it got to the point, a quality that writers today seem to have a big challenge with. It didn't dabble and didn't satisfy any of the unnecessary rules of screenplay, which was a such a breathe of fresh air. The comedy was organic, not forced out or moronic. This mixed elements of instantaneous laughter with true wit. The themes of family, life as it comes, and true happiness really shown through with the wonderful performances and raw, real dialogue. The only thing that I can say to improve on was the music. I thought the music could have been better in the film because sometimes it would take me out of the moment of the scene. Some original music could have been recorded, which would have made the film better. The audience at Austin film fest loved it, and it was it's world premiere. Only the filmmaker had seen it, the cast, the producer, and everyone else hadn't seen it yet so everyone was nervous. It turned out great, and I wish this all the best of luck.
