Awesome film that actually tries to move past simplicity
The film is definitely interesting for individuals looking to watch something that is new, a little different that has no preachy typical message. The Acting: The various roles are a diverse concoction, but are necessary to build the storyline. The characters are typical to many films, "hearthrob, hot chick, nerd" that fulfill the regular roles. There is no expectation for them to create non-stereotypical characters, but Jon Gries was an hilarious addition to the main two actors. Cameron Fife and Tyler McGee are an interesting duo that have juxtaposing character traits, but have developed a relationship based on this. The complexity of the cast with the exception of the lead female actor (Bowden). The continually surprised/confused looking lead actress was the only downside to the acting, with the rest of the characters developing a meaningful story that is sprinkled in with some witty humor and banter. 7/10
The Plot: There isn't a way to capture the plot in one sentence. Two actors/writers are struggling, have emotional "issues", have a decision whether to keep their integrity or sell-out. This left me a little underwhelmed as the ending did not adequately capture the consequences that the main characters face/would face based on their decision. There is also another plot that deals with Bowden,Fife and McGee that has various twists and turns and holds its own, raising moral issues with the actions but also asks you to think about what you would do in the situation. 9/10
The music/video: Overall the music is minimal, as the story doesn't require too much. That being said, the piano provides a mood setting piece, as well as helping to create and develop a mood as well as furthering the story: 7/10
Conclusion: The budget was really low, the effects were minimal but the writing and the majority of the acting make the film a definite watch for something interesting that might not get adequate coverage, but does what it sets out to do.
Overall: Between 7-8/10 because it is an interesting, fun film to see. Check it out if you have the time.
