'Rushmore' meets 'The Graduate'

Daniel Giabrata is a determined young filmmaker waiting for his big break, or any break at all. He just lost his film investors interest, the love of his life to a "celebrity hack", and is flat out broke.

While dreaming of a future in film-making, Danielle must pay the bills as a lowly wedding videographer. Daniels self-made Purple Diamond Productions is a low budget production team, which he directs with the tenacity and vision of a big budget production house.

Julie, sister of a bride who is seeking videography services, contacts Daniel. Over a cup of coffee the two discuss the wedding and in doing so, discuss her life. Julie has also experienced the strife and complication of life at a young age. Yet remains fresh in perspective and optimism that are well suited for Daniels neurotic outlook. Daniels quirky understated charm intrigues Julie, a companionship ensues.

Life for this dispirited filmmaker seems to look up. Daniel is informed of a secluded billionaire film investor from a small town called Pecumsecah. Thousands of dollars in film investments have been traced to this underground investors name. The only catch is he wont entertain conversation with producers unless they seek him out at his home.

Daniel accompanied by Julie decides to take a long journey upstate to visit this eccentric billionaire. Hopeful of becoming the next big investors project, Daniel has nothing to lose. The road to Pecumsecah proves that Daniel has much more to gain then he had realized.

It is rare to experience a film that balances sheer entertainment, humor, and poignancy. Lanzones acting, writing, and direction worked harmoniously to create a film that leaves its viewer hopeful and entertained. Road to Pecumsecah was full of piercing wit, laden with excellent performances and even a few good-natured morals.

I look forward to his next production.
