Excellent Performances!!
12 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw THE GOOD TIMES ARE KILLING ME when I was visiting family in Canada. This was an incredibly complex, character-driven piece. I thought the acting was excellent. Kelly Rowan is a talented actress. Canadian broadcaster CTV was smart to make a movie with her. I loved her work in THE O.C., but her performance in THE GOOD TIMES ARE KILLING ME is even more layered and rich.

I thought this was a welcome departure from the typical TV movies I stumble across on many American broadcasters. And Rupert Graves who many will remember from A ROOM WITH A VIEW also gives a spirited and emotional performance. I can't tell you what happens because that would ruin it for you. But let's just say that if you stick with it, you will be rewarded. The story unravels in a completely unique and unpredictable way. Well done!
