Communication is becoming a lost art.
4 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film portrays the growing gap between the generation texters and the oldest generation that had to communicate using speech and eye contact and touch. The older lady gives a sense of the loneliness that comes as we age and become isolated. The young texter portrays a generation that is disconnected from eye contact and speech but is isolated in a world that revolves around technology and has become cold and alone. I really enjoyed the nice hand touch at the end between the two as the generations came together briefly and then the texter really brings it home at the end as he wonders if he ever talks to anyone at all. Very nice thought provoking film. The two actors really seemed to connect on several levels leaving me wanting more. Well done Mr. Kicklighter.
