Storyline

In an effort to promote his unpublished novel, Davy Mitchell sets out on a road trip with his younger brother. However, the idealism of being on the road wears off and it quickly proves to be a lonely and unfulfilling experience for Davy. One night in a motel room he gets a random phone call from a mysterious woman named Nicole. They start a funny and intimate long distance relationship that leaves Davy happier than he has been in years. Hoping there is more to the relationship then a voice and a phone bill, Davy decides he wants to meet Nicole. Ultimately, he will have to face not only the truth about their relationship but also about himself. Written by Kyle Patrick Alvarez

Quotes

[first lines]
Davy Mitchell: [reading] But that was all still to come in Maggie's den. The silence on the phone hissed and rumbled and crashed in my ear. It was the silence I still hear. Always in the middle of the night, when I'm walking down an empty highway. Or rolling across the center of the lake. Or holed-up in the last darkened Amtrak car, looking out the window at the distant twinkling lights. Some call it longing, but I call it silence. That night though, on the phone, I heard my brother's voice. Hello...

Fabulicious!
25 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As young, first time director, Kyle Patrick Alvarez, created quite a film, Easier with Practice, and is creating quite a stir. A passion of his since forever, was to direct and create movies. A lot of people do not know he is very musical also and brought great independent music to the film. He is very well read and a great writer. He really understands the entire process of movie making. Not every director has that gift. Everyone who worked with him on the film, have nothing but respect for Kyle Patrick. A 'true' Indie film made on a small budget. He casted the film perfectly. Although there is phone sex, the movie is really about an experience, a love story, a troubled soul. Based on a true story that was maybe 3 pages long, Kyle Patrick immediately knew upon reading it, he could make it into a full length movie. He is a Hollywood 'REFRESHER'! SOMEONE TO WATCH indeed.....
