Worth watching
9 September 2012 | by (Roundup, Montana USA) – See all my reviews

I completely disagree with the bad reviews!

First of all, the storyline is a GREAT concept.

Secondly, the acting is well done for a low budget film, even though not all the actors are professional, it does add to the film a sort of documentary prospective.

Last but not least, is that the directing and videotography for a single camera low budget film are beyond compare.

This film should be a must see for all who are preparing to make a leap into movie-making on a budget, the video editing is well done as is the sound editing, but nothing beats having a keen eye for filming, reminds me of the work of cinematographer Bert Glennon !
