Well done film.
11 June 2012 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

I watched this film at the Phoenix Comicon Festival and it was very well done. From the acting (great job to Robert Picardo for playing a dual role, and to the 10 year old Jared Young who played a very challenging role of a kid whose parents are getting divorced and he must choose whom to live with) to the music (a score by the director's choice of composer Neil Argo) to the camera work (the RED camera looks great), it worked. The film was similar to "The Princess of Bride" but there was more of an emphasis on the here and now rather than the fantastical story that was told.

The dialogue was sometimes wordy but maybe that was because of the emotional content (divorce is a central theme in this film and you can tell when the estranged husband and wife argue - and do they argue!). All in all, I would recommend this film.
