Carrie IS the Film!
16 May 2010 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This may be a very low budget and common-themed play, but what makes this film so compelling is Carrie's character. I won't tell the whole story (it IS the other commentary).

The transformation the whole cast goes through as the film develops into a full story is remarkable. Even astonishing. Joshua, played by young Lurie Poston is perfectly believable. The fact that two siblings play the part of siblings is another very believable feature. All in all, the issue about Joshua's "sexual leaning" is treated with care, respect and love... Carrie (Andrea, Joshua's Mum) should be awarded some new kind of prize: she is absolutely fantastic at being Mum... she conveys her struggle in such a way that the film sort of makes you feel what she's going through.

Dialogues are good. Scenes are sometimes a bit over the top. Some really hilarious moments are cheap and effective. But, at least from my point of view, the substance that should be on the kid's side is transferred to the mother, thus diminishing the power of the message a bit. But, alas, Carrie's character IS the film!
