Endearing without the Sap
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rick Hansberry has written a beautiful tale not to be missed. The excellent direction of Chris Messineo truly brought this dramatic story to life in vibrant ways. To make the story truly shine, the actors chosen were not only perfectly suited for their roles, but their performances were solid, natural and spot-on.

Daniel Stern's narration was fabulous and matched the tone of the movie extremely well. Right from the beginning, we're hooked by his even yet rhythmic intonations that are inviting as well as captivating.

Furthermore, Michael Whalen's exceptional score will stay with you long after the credits roll. Absolutely breathtaking music!

Most importantly, the story, though timeless, is fresh and invigorating to anyone, anywhere.

Although some may think short films are throwaways and not worth spending time on, to miss BRANCHES would be a grand mistake. Sit back, enjoy - and I have no doubt you'll watch it repeatedly, and tell your friends and family to do the same.
