Cast Signing Party August 11th 2007
6 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Good story, excellent cinematography, and some better than average acting at times, great locations, and good connections among the characters. From the official website: The Naked Ape is a bittersweet dramatic comedy about friendships, insecurities, rites of passage and the death of idealism. With documentary-style narration drawn from the Desmond Morris book by the same name. The Naked Ape is coming-of-age tale about trying to run away from your problems and learning that the real change has to take place within yourself. See pictures from the signing at A Castle of Books, 7159 Katella Ave, Stanton, CA 90680. http://tinyurl.com/yv7c6t
