Let me be the first to review!
7 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this really good indie flick not knowing the story or what to expect and I was very pleasantly surprised! I thought the characters were played well by virtually unknown actors and the movie had me hooked right from the opening scene! It didn't have all the bells and whistles bigger budget movies have but it didn't need anything extra than what it had. A very pleasant movie with a great ending that you don't really see coming. Movies nowadays are fairly predictable but this little gem kept Sam a mystery as to what he was going to do and that for me really made the movie interesting and worth watching even more. You don't know what he's going to do and I can't stress enough that even with a budget that can't get you much more than a room full of people, it hit all its marks and didn't need anymore frills. This is definitely going to be in my top 20 list of favourite indie surprises that I can look back on and remember the first time I watched it and how it made me feel. Bravo to the director!!
