Academy Awards, take notice! Great Acting and Great Scenery make for a Great Film. I was lucky enough to see Approaching Midnight in the movie theater at Cobb Theater in Clearwater, Florida. I plan on buying the DVD from Best Buy this week because I am a huge fan of military movies, crime movies and there's over 5 making of documentaries on this DVD.
The movie's co-star Jana Kramer (ACM's New Female Vocalist of the Year for 2013), Michelle Lynne Balser (Locked in a Room) Mia Serafino (Saving Mr. Banks with Tom Hanks) are awesome in the movie, and provide good acting with good scenery. Sam Logan Khaleghi's (director/actor) managed to do a perfect job of working both on and behind the camera, and joins so many others that have done so recently. I'm excited to find some of his earlier work as a producer. I really enjoyed this film and I was a fan of his previous work on MTV.
I heard it was filmed in Michigan which is a very popular place with filmmakers lately (ie the new Batman vs Superman and Transformers). It's hard to resist the beauty of the state, although the film takes place in a fictional all American city. It's action packed indeed, but aside from that, I loved the whole Main Street, Horses, Big Town politics versus Small Town politics dialogue that makes for an awesome script. I was at the edge of my seat during the entire climax of the movie, especially the courtroom sequence and it held my attention solid. The acting was probably the best part.
