Smaller is Better
2 November 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

All I can say is that I was intrigued by this project for two reasons. The first is that I have admired Ed Burns' work in the past. The second is that I had read about the unorthodox, low key straight to DVD and ON-Demand way this film was being marketed and it intrigued me. It was either a sign that Burns had confidence that positive press and word of mouth would empower this project or a sign that it was a piece of crap. I am happy to report it is the former. The film is is a testament to the power of a well crafted script and good acting. The film stars virtual unknowns. Burns is a secondary player in the film. The story is strong. The characters are likable and the message is subtle but powerful. It is worth the investment of time with this project.
