Great Story of an awful truth.
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well written and produced. Great dialect and metaphors.

I've been following WSMP since the great story of the Tin Man from Wizard of OZ "Heartless" (you will have to google that one); and they never fall short from their niche - which is to tell a great story!

My expectations were set really high on this film due to the trend that has been set with their previous films. I must say, although The Candy Shop is a bit controversial, the message is clear and the quality of the film is again, outstanding.

I give it another "bag of kudos" for WhiteStone. I look forward to more from this Georgia Based film company.
