Please put the "Brat Pack" label away... there's a new label for Mr. McCarthy: Director. Eloquent, Inspired, Skilled Director. I was honored not only to screen my own film along side News from the Church, but to also appear on a panel with Andrew at the Palm Springs International Film Festival of Short Films. His film is phenomenal... not just by it's technical merits (cinematography, editing, etc.), but particularly it's story content and how it was so beautifully told by Andrew and the actors. I won't go into a synopsis (I'm sure another review somewhere will give you that). But I watched the film not knowing much about what I was going to see, and I was bowled over by it. If this film doesn't have a long life on the festival circuit, I'll be shocked.
