Promising Debut Film
16 July 2013 | by (Leominster, MA) – See all my reviews

I saw an advanced screening of this film by the director who was a professor of mine at the University of Central Florida. She had invited anyone to stay after class one day to watch an almost completed version of the film in which we were asked to give notes and suggestions. Aleksa Palladino (Boardwalk Empire) gives a great performance as a nursing home orderly who suspects something unsettling is happening within the nursing home. The movie, like any small budget independent rookie feature, suffers some poor acting and production value but nothing that would turn you off from the story. Laura Lopez was always a great teacher and humble human being and is an intriguing director who will hopefully have a successful career ahead of her. I'm not sure if this movie is commercially available but it is worth a watch if you can find it.
