QWERTY - Words With Friends and Scrabble Lovers - A Must See
22 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Qwerty is a story about two people who start out living with low self- esteem, social acceptance,and love. The film shows how after meeting and developing a relationship, their love for each other helps both to develop and blossom.

Qwerty isn't just your run-of-the-mill love story, however, because each individual's personal growth is just as important as the actual relationship. Zoe's growth is shown when the insecure young woman gains enough confidence to enter the National Scrabble Championship. For Marty, the comfort begins to grow as he slowly starts to accept that Zoe doesn't so much need him as she simply really, really loves him. Pupkin and Hailey do a great job making their characters believable and likable.

Qwerty had its world premier at the Kansas City Film Festival where it was well received. I watched the film at the Dallas International Film Festival and enjoyed hearing the laughter generated because, yes, Qwerty is a comedy. Along with the strong character development the writer Juliet McDaniel gives the lead characters she complements this with minor characters who provide the backdrop for introducing humor in life's struggles.

Chicago lovers will enjoy the seeing sites from the windy city and may enjoy seeing the city sites on film. The film photography, editing, music, and directing is all top quality.

Qwerty is on a good run of film festivals. Catch it on the big screen at one of the festivals when you can. It would be great to see a distributer pick this quality independent film up for theater distribution.
