A must see film.
24 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

A wonderfully moving film that kept me glued to the screen from beginning to end. I felt the start was a little slow paced but as the film progressed, I realized that it was necessary to the storyline and gave me the viewer the time to get under each character's skin. The acting is believable and the storyline quite touching. I laughed and cried and became emotionally involved with all the characters in the film, especially with young Coleman and his uncle Matt. I am sure that director Antonio DiVerdis is a passionate filmmaker and well in touch with human emotions to be able to make a film so sensitive, poignant and realistic. Mr. DiVerdis, I look forward to seeing your next film.
