A Promising Director's Impressive Debut Film!
16 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Scott McKinsey is the son of the late soap actress, Beverlee McKinsey. Scott has worked as a director behind the soap scenes for years to earn his status. In this film, he takes a true story of Eddy Patterson, an 18 year old autistic but intelligent and likable sports adult. The actor who plays Eddy does a brilliant job in bringing this character to life. He is played by Brian Presley who could have easily earned nominations if the Hollywood community would pay attention. All Eddy wants to do and dream about is playing for the Los Angeles Clippers so he takes a bus to Los Angeles where he doesn't know anybody or have any money. Thank God for Anna Maria Horsford's character, Carol, who runs the homeless shelter downtown. She relays the task of mentoring to Mike Jeffreys, a former pro basketball player, who is doing community service within the shelter. He is reluctant to be big brother. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of Scott's mother, Beverlee, who retired from acting since 1994 officially in any role capacity. Regardless, Scott is an incredible director and has a promising future.
