Great movie
19 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed it a lot.

That's all.

It's a hard movie to summarize without spoiling it.

Saw it at the Chicago Int'l Film Festival last night, and if this does receive a theatrical release, I'd recommend going. Per the director, there may already be plans to release it on cable and DVD, and theatrical options for New York/Los Angeles/Chicago are being explored. Keep your fingers crossed.

I'm sure other people will add more useful comments, but someone had to get this started.
