Beautifully Acted & Directed
30 October 2009 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

Rob Diamond has directed and co-written (Andre Curtis) a film that is thought-provoking and very moving. It was exciting to see Heather Beers in a role worthy of her talents (she was wonderful as the lead of CHARLY). This low budget film is able to touch the heart more deeply then most films with a hundred times the money are able to do. It has something worth feeling and thinking about and uses the acting of Beers, Susanne Sutchy and two young girls, Savanna Kyle Lewis and Stefania Barr to move from childhood to adulthood as it explores people coming to terms with what really matters in life. John Reeds beautiful cinematography and Arlen L. Card's charming score do their part in making the film work emotionally. Is it worth adding to your DVD library? Absolutely! The Behind the Scenes Interviews with six of the crew and actors is special. You feel the joy that they had in participating in a project that must have been a work of love.
