Being a film buff, it was suggested to me by another young and very talented writer, director & actor Dave Campfield (see "Under Surveillance") to give this film a try.
I found this movie to be a very pleasant piece with unique subject matter, the plight of a washed-up social guidance filmmaker who partners up with a young mysterious loner. Although I was disappointed in the typical Hollywood ending, I thoroughly enjoyed Steven Gilborn's acting, which brought class and professionalism to this story. Though this movie was listed under the comedy genre, I would categorize it as a light-hearted drama with some humorous moments. The direction of this film is quite good although a bit slow at times. This could possibly be intended by the director in order to stay with the retro, late 50's early 60's feel. The cinematography and the film as a whole has a polished feel to it for a low budget movie.
The writers and director of this film have great potential and I would look forward to their next project. I would suggest that they follow up with something offering a little more edge and get away from the Hollywood ending, but for now if you get the opportunity to see this one it is worth a look.
