One of the Best films yet!
23 November 2008 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Recently, I met Mr. Perry Moore (Director) of Lake City,

His film touched me. I really think this man is a genius in the making. Lake City is a film about pain, and suffering, of things said and unsaid a film about a mother and son's struggle to forget a terrible accident gone wrong. The cast was beautifully put together.

The film touched on the human side of life. It showed how vulnerable pain can make us. How if kept inside can make us hurt. But, in Lake City you get to see it all. you see pain, you see a man struggle with responsibility and you get to see him grow along with his mothers help. At the end ...... Well, you decide. "Go see it"
