I just last night saw this astounding film at the Rome International Film Festival. The creators of this film have balanced intelligent (and side splitting) humor with a complex, important and relevant dramatic message. That few film makers have found success in fusing these genres (apart from, perhaps, the Coen brothers, Charlie Kaufman) is a testimony to the difficulty of the task. Writers Troy Hall, Kevin Logie and director Rafael Monserrate prove with this film that they can weave comedy and drama, effortlessly. The result is both entertaining and profoundly compelling. The film also features unforgettable performances from its two writers, Kathleen Quinlan, Jay O. Sanders, Robert Bogue and the stunning Deshja Driggs. Make an effort to get yourself in front of a screen that has this movie playing on it. You'll thank yourself.
