A beautiful and complete script!
9 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the pleasure of watching and reviewing this project. It is a tremendously tight story with a fantastic cast and amazingly strong character arcs. Every story corner is covered : a must see when released! A beautiful treasure among a sea of superficial mayhem. Hopefully this will be picked up soon as it's certain to be a crowd pleaser. Ed Radtke continues to grow in his scope of life and what is beyond. I understand he spent many years tweaking and refining this story so that every possible angle and thrust was covered and trust me it shows. Using local talent in New York and a fine crew of enthusiastic professionals who were willing to explore new possibilities in experimental camera work is, in itself, evident in this refreshing and uplifting film. I wish every Hollywood project would contain the integrity that this films exudes. Kudos Ed Radkte!
