Storyline

Art Leroldi is widowed and fading - a small time Reno barber stuck in a rut of haircuts and horse-books. When he loses his cutting partner of twenty years, he's faced with closing Reno's last man's man barbershop or hiring the last person on earth he'd ever want working there - a woman. More specifically, Gloria MacIntyre, a broke, spit-fire young woman suddenly unable to take no for answer. This is the story two unlikely people, who meet in one unlikely place - The Village Barbershop. Written by Chris Ford

5 March 2008 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

This movie is a real gem that is making its way through the festival circuit as of Spring 2008. It is a feature length film about second chances in life - well acted with a nice musical score, solid story with a nice ending! John Ratzenberger does a fine job of portraying the quite dignity of the barber (Art Leroldi). Shelly Cole is fabulous as Gloria MacIntyre and I would hope to see more of her on screen. The paring of these two actors in this movie worked very well as it gave us a story and character that fit together perfectly. Cliff Traiman did a fine job as Cinematographer as did the post production audio and music artists.
