An Inspiration!!!
24 November 2008 | by (New Brunswick, Canada) – See all my reviews

Absolutely Amazing!!! This film was beautifully shot in a beautiful city! The characters were pristine and the storyline was very original (despite what the Toronto $tar says). I would highly recommend seeing if you get a chance. I will definitely own this DVD as soon as it's available.

As a side note, I don't see any resemblance between this film and others. I would compare this film to a lot of others, but for good reason. I would compare the characteristics of the film to others such as Ted Demme's Blow, or Jenji Kohan's Weeds for the sole reason that they are favorite Films and Series. And just F.Y.I, There's room for all three on the top shelf of my DVD collection! =)

This film is an inspiration to me as an aspiring filmmaker so thank you very much!
