Anton 'Klin' Ostrovsky,
I saw Sweet Mud at the Philadelphia Film Festival last night. My friend and I were expecting something slow-moving and maybe boring at times, but we were pleasantly surprised. The movie sold out (word must have gotten around) and you could tell by the audience's reactions that everyone loved it. This film gives such a detailed view of life on a commune, and at the same time it showed a young boy's struggle with his depressed single mother with plenty of comedic moments. I'm not much of a reviewer but I highly recommend seeing this film... it's playing again in Philadelphia this Tuesday at the Ritz Five, for those of you who live in the area!
