At the Bridgetown Film Festival in Barbados the Anderson's Cross filmmakers were sat near the exit with guards during their screening. Festival organizers were concerned about the possible reaction of the audience, due to some of the gay elements in the film. They needn't have worried, the audience cheered when the gay characters kissed and the film went on to win 'Best International Feature' at the festival. See more »
The story is poignant, funny and unbearably sad. I liked it. I really liked it. Nick Anderson is confused about more than his sexuality, far more. There are times of joy and times of sadness. It contains lots of humor and comedic elements that make you smile and laugh through-out the film. The coming of age well is explored here by examining the fates and troubles of a handful of individuals and their interaction with one another. The theme of acceptance runs through the whole movie. If you are cynical, this is not for you. If you like to laugh and cry and all that good stuff you'll love this movie. It is well written, directed, and acted, especially by Michael Warren and Joyce Guy. Not what I had expected, and I was not disappointed. This was a very, very pleasant surprise.
