Lily and her family have little closure on the death of her father since he was never found, thus Lily sets out alone on a trek to the ocean to find the closure that she needs to heal her loss. Set in 1965 Alabama, during the Civil Rights marches. Written by
I can only say that the positive reviews are obviously written by the director or her mother! This movie is bad on all accounts it's a wonder the writer/director/producer actually got these old TV stars on it. They must be so embarrassed to have their names attached. Director show's no perception or discernment when it comes to talent, why would she cast her daughter in the lead role, very bad move. The girl is wooden, shows no emotion or lack of connectivity to the material. Holly also doesn't seem to understand the craft of storytelling, the fact that this movie hasn't been formally reviewed or she's not showing it, is a testament that she knows full well it's a bomb. I don't know how anyone can take her seriously as a filmmaker or actually sign on with anything she's doing. Apparently she's going to write/direct/produce a new film about Bonnie and Clyde! Oh Lordy. And so what if it's her first film, there are many first time filmmakers that are truly brilliant, Holly ain't one of em. Get over it, your film is a waste of time, money.
