Great movie!
28 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at a private screening in Century City and thought it was a great film. It introduces a somewhat new approach to the concept of a bibliographical film, but it works out fantastic. The main actor does a great job, as well as the supporting cast. It has the right amount of comedy and drama, perfect combination. It's a must see, very underrated, as I hear no one even knew the main actor before this film, but a great supporting cast will probably help him become more recognizable. I also had a chance to meet the director at this screening and she has a bright future in this business watch for other films from her.
