Great Performances!
25 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a very good example of how a well-written, well-directed and technically good film can carry more punch than a lot of Hollywood heavy-hitters. Some of the cast members have appeared in TV shows (such as The Sopranos and CSI: Miami) but most are practically unknown. Take Christine Evangelista, the female lead, she alone amazingly carries the film. Her performance is simply Oscar worthy and I am not exaggerating (note: I don't know her nor know anyone associated with this film). The directing is very smooth and unobtrusive. The cinematography is plain great. Every single actor in this film shines. I was pleasantly surprised by the cast. It's a drama worthy of a film festival Best Picture and Best Ensemble Cast prizes. Kudos to everyone involved in this very fine film.
