Standout at the 2003 Newport Beach Film Fest
23 April 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

The standout drama and clear audience favorite of its program at the 2003 Newport Beach Film Festival in Newport Beach, CA in early April. A stunning and timely effort by emerging filmmaker Kevin Shahinian and veteran actor Robert Pierce. Ambitious and effectively executed. A wonderful film.
