A surprise ending, superbly played out in the writing, directing and acting.
30 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent direction and production, and Amy Adams was convincing and vulnerable. The actress, Debby Porter and one-half of a pair of closeted lesbians was quite humorous for a new actress. Matthew Grant is always a stand-out in any part that he undertakes, having also produced and directed films. Diana Valentine is an experienced director, having started out as a stunt-woman, then moving to script supervising before directing. Warner Loughlin is a successful acting coach, with a quite impressive clientèle. Eddie Adams writing is very mature for his young age. The crew consisted of some of the best gaffers, cameramen and A.D.s in the business. Ronnie Schell, a veteran actor, really adds some character to the picture. It's a feel-good picture, and shouldn't be missed if you have the chance to see it. Pennies is an all-around hit!
