Looks like a blockbuster
7 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the privilege of screening Strings as a volunteer at the Tulsa Film Festival earlier this year. I was absolutely blown away by every aspect of the film. The overall quality, writing, direction, acting and location selection were as good as any big budget Hollywood film. I was particularly impressed by the acting. Every cast member portrayed the emotion and depth of their character very well. The young actors were especially brilliant in their performances. Getting to hear the story of how Strings was made after the screening revealed what an amazing project the directors put together on an unbelievably small budget. I have become a big fan of Strings and hope to see it again very soon in wide release.
