Smart and unassuming Canadian film
26 April 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just got back from a screening of 'Only' and I must say, I was mightily impressed.

This quiet little film deserves all the accolades and praise bestowed upon it. For starters, the film's two young stars Jacob Switzer and Elena Hudgins Lyle come across so naturally that it's hard to believe the film was scripted - the story literally jumps from the faces and voices of it's 12 and 13 year old stars.

Kudos to all, especially for the two first-time writers/directors (long-time Canadian actors Ingrid Veninger and Simon Reynolds) who pulled off a deceptively simple little gem.

Another feather in the cap for Canadian film.
