Will Eddie win the bet? Will he find the ticket? Will greed ruin the friendship with his childhood buddies? Will he get the girl? Written by
This film is so funny! I love all the characters and the story was really original. It's refreshing to see a low budget film out of Miami's indie film scene to be so well done and executed. Never a dull moment. The girls were really hot, especially Angelina Assereto, who plays the sultry Sonia. The main actor John Bryant did a superb job with the main character Eddie. The photography was absolutely beautiful and this film captures Miami like no other film I've ever seen. The characters act and talk like real Miami people.
I believe this this was the director Will Vazquez' first film who is obviously an up and coming talent to watch for. I saw it when it premiered at the Chicago Latino Film Festival in May and I understand it opened the Kansas International Film Festival in September. Let's hope we can get it on Netflix soon.
