Wonderful! Hilarious! Brilliant!
6 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Selling is a brilliant, expertly crafted film. The script is extremely well written, the dialogue is funny, fast and realistic, the actors welcome us into the story and are hilariously believable (the real-estate office scenes and open house scenes will be highly amusing to those familiar with buying or selling a home). And the direction of this film is superb.

Going into the theatre to see this movie I assumed an independent film would have special effects that would be slightly amateurish. They weren't. They were wonderful! And they pack a scare, so be mindful if there are kids under 8 or 9 watching with you.

Director Emily Lou's pacing is marvelous. This is a funny horror story

  • it's meant to be both, and that's a tricky thing to do. The tense
build up to scary moments are perfectly mixed with the lighter laughs and the "over the top, screams for laughter" moments as well. This kind of thing could have been a disaster, but the pacing is expertly managed here.

There's a story within a story and that is handled beautifully as well. The performances are nuanced and bring us into the fun, and those of us old enough to remember Barry Bostwick in Rocky Horror will delight at his appearance here. Gabriel Diani is a gem and that rare performer who deftly handles humour, horror, angst and tenderness with ease.

Definitely see this movie. You'll have a little fright, a lot of laughs and most importantly, you will care about these people.
