Trivia

Alex Draguicevich who plays the "dog collar boy" was cast when the directors were too embarrassed to place a casting call explaining the part to potential young actors' parents. The directors phoned Olivia Draguicevich's mother and asked if Olivia's brother Alex was available for the scene. See more »

First reaction: I want to see it again!
16 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I saw this stunning film at the Breckenridge Film Festival, where it garnered well-deserved praise and awards.

The story involves choices... and consequences. Each step taken by the main character leads him further into a world he (and we) don't understand. Gorgeous cinematography and deft editing seduce us into his dark reality. Clarity comes in lightening flashes. Directors Ben Foster and Mark Dennis attack an intriguing "what if" scenario with jaw-dropping originality.

The visually arresting wild ride is enhanced by outstanding music. (The Breckenridge Festival jury was sufficiently impressed by Billy Harvey's song, "Greatest Escape", to create a special award in its honor).

I'm looking forward to a wider release of "Strings", because I can't wait to tell people: go see it!
