Great little film
11 May 2005 | by (Rocheseter, NY) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing The Sky is Falling at the 2005 Rochester International Film Festival (where my own film, "Donna's Room", played). This is a great little film! Adam did a wonderful job directing, and the film was certainly a hit as the festival. Great timing, great laughs, and amazing production value. Adam is certainly a director to watch as he's going to make it in the industry!

The film is about a hotel in the 30s during the stock market crash. Do to the crash, the hotel has been the target of people who want to commit suicide. One bellboy takes it upon himself to curb the amount of suicides while also trying to gain the affection of the assistant manager who he secretly loves. All of the performances are top notch, with the bell boy really standing out.
