this film should truly grip a young audience.
20 September 2011 | by (Catworth,Hunts,, Cambridgeshire) – See all my reviews

There is no doubting the potential of this team who have pulled off a film with a highly relevant contemporary storyline and plenty of very well executed visual angles; the movie features plenty of action to bring the whole to a genuine climax.

Analysis of the premise of the storyline suggests actual experience of the writers and producers in the arena of LA , the temptations and struggles of would-be media creative artists, and prejudices and trials related to mixed marriages and the pressures of hedonism and drug-based lifestyles.

The acting seems quite subtle and not at all overblown (as so often one finds featured in less well psychologically studied films) and the cast are clearly at one with their characters. I thoroughly commend the performance of Del Prete who is astonishingly realistic for such a young actor. The female cast show great strength in character-building and handle close-ups (always a problem for young actors) with great professionalism.
