Outstanding!
30 August 2011 | by (Los Angeles, United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when it had a showing at the Hollywood Film Festival. The cinematography and acting is wonderful. Especially the performances of Michael Clarke Duncan and Morgan Simpson. But, I was blown away by the story itself. It kept me guessing until the end. I totally got lost in the journey. It is visually a treat.

Simpson takes us on an arc from the depths of what life can give you. This film was solid from beginning to end.

I would highly recommend this film. I heard it is in limited release. I hope it comes back to Southern California. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Plus the soundtrack is amazing!
