Several reasons why this movie is fantastic and an absolute MUST SEE
27 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the good fortune to watch the movie's world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival 2008. It's a moving, thoughtful and yet highly entertaining movie with incredibly gorgeous cinematography.

This is not your same old same old "road trip movie" nor is it one of the well known stories about a band. It's a little bit different and even surprising at times.

The only flaw I can see in this movie is the last quarter of the movie which seems a bit too constructed and maybe even a bit rushed. Then again, the ending is really well chosen and makes you leave the movie with on an upbeat note.

The acting is great. Joe Anderson is fantastic! He's able to show the difference nuances of his character and to transport what's haunting and driving him. The rest of the cast is believable and convincing too. It's a true character driven story which never gets boring.

I highly recommend it to anyone who's in for 85 minutes with gorgeous pictures, great music, honest feelings and fantastic acting. Kudos to everybody and especially Erica Dunton! Love this movie.
