Lake City is a powerful film, well made, well casted and well scripted. The direction is remarkable and the acting is fabulous. Each actor comes across very natural and the characters are very believable....at many times, it is almost like watching a real life situation. The director's have dealt with the story in a very special manner - delicately maintaining the fine balance between the feelings of love, anger, rage, guilt, and compassion. The mother and son relationship is the best any celluloid has ever been able to portray. Please do not miss this special film - A Must See!! I also had the pleasure of meeting both director's (Perry Moore and Hunter Hill) at the informal q n a at the Quad Cinemas in NY. Getting to know about the budget and time frame of the shoot, it was beyond impressive. I wish both Perry and Hunter my very best and would love to see more films that I am confident will make a difference contributing to GOOD cinema. thanks for a great film.
