wow, the best film I have seen in a long time!!
9 December 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I work in Whistler and was talked into going to a film festival film called THE ZERO SUM. It rocks!!! go see it! Where is this film coming out??? This film was better than any movie I have seen in a while. I am new to this but a new found fan of "indy" films!! Leonard is played by the guy from TRAINSPOTTING named spud. He is amazing as the mugger who starts to fall in love with a woman he robbed. His brother is in prison writing a book and he pretends it is his. Really great ending too! Other famous people are the rapper YOUNG MC who did "bust a move" and wrote Ton Loc's songs. Oh and the guy from Invasion is in it too named Tyler Labine.
