The Film Catalogue
I recently saw this film at the Newport Beach Film Festival and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Despite arriving almost 30 minutes early on a Sunday evening, the place was packed and we were lucky to find two seats in the third row. This is a very touching story that made us both laugh and cry. The acting was fantastic, and although this was the first I had ever seen of Matt Dallas, I expect he will be the next big heart throb. I highly recommend this film and only wish we had brought my teenage son to see it. This is a movie that can be appreciated by all age groups, young to old. I hope to have the opportunity to see this movie again soon in the theaters!
