I just saw this film at the Antelope Valley Independent Film Festival, and I have to say it was one of the best, if not the best, of the features on the program.
The acting was exceptional, thanks to the writing, of course, and the film itself is beautiful. Shot on DV, it could've looked like a home movie, but it was hard to tell that it wasn't 35mm.
The plot intertwines the lives of about 6 characters, and manages to tie them all together loosely, without giving you the whole picture, which works much better in this case than your typical Don Simpson Hollywood ending. The filmmakers did a lot of cutting away at key moments in the film, to give you that heightened sense of anticipation, a little tease, then they snatched the payoff away, leaving you wanting more. I think the whole movie is ultimately the same way, and you love it.
I will be buying this film on DVD as soon as it's available, and if you have a chance to catch a screening of it, don't miss your chance.
