I saw this movie at the Atlanta Film Festival and first, let me say that this movie LOOKS great. I have to commend those responsible for the visual side of the film, the director, the D.P., the gaffer, etc. It all looks great. There's many creative shots in this piece and the Hi-Def video does them justice.
The acting is pretty top notch as well, especially David Carridine (who's always great) and Chris Rydell (who I don't believe I've seen before). Clementine Ford and Liam O'Neill were decent, but not spectacular, in their parts, but I'm not sure they had enough to carry them as leads. On the other hand, the supporting characters played by Chad McKnight, Sara Stanton and Tim Habeger were deftly portrayed and nearly steal the show.
My biggest complaint would probably be the plot, as I figured out where the story was headed about half-way through and it seemed to lumber along to get to that point. But overall, the story is very original and the visuals were so well done, you may not notice.
This is definitely one of the most impressive, truly indie films I've seen in a while. It shows what Atlanta filmmakers have been doing under the radar for a while now. Hopefully, it gets distribution...
