Exceptional Film on all levels
29 October 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't have the words or the talent to write a brilliant review. I am not even capable. I can be dead pan honest and simply say this is an excellent movie in which each character is a real as real gets. Every single one of them feels and looks totally real and the story is completely brilliant in what it draws you into. These kids, these hard working smart kids get dragged into the casino slums along with all the lies that comes along with it.

Get it .. watch it. Make popcorn.

This is a perfect little movie and I wish I could find the drawbacks. There are none.
