Uncovering history with a 50's hot rod.
23 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a tour-de-force by the incredibly talented Faith Granger, who almost single handedly willed this into being. Very high production values for a no-budget films that only suffers from occasionally wooden dialog and stiff performances, which can easily be ignored. The centerpiece of this film is the hot-rod cult of the 50's and the men and women that filled it with drama.

I knocked it off one point as mentioned above for the wooden dialog and stiff performances. I think if Ms Granger could pull in more talent instead of having to do it all herself, she could easily overcome these problems in the future. I knocked it off another point as the plot did get a touch melodramatic at times. I described it to a friend as a mix between American Graffiti and The Notebook (for it's framed story approach). While I love American Graffiti, The Notebook was definitely not in my top ten.

Bottom line: if you love hot-rods, this is a must see. If you love a good story, and don't mind a little melodrama, again, must see. I can't wait to see if Ms Granger can top this.
