Riveting - Superb - Meaningful!
26 October 2012 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

Saw this tonight and it's still replaying in my mind. This is what true and worthy communication through the performing arts should be! I am reluctant to refer to it as a "short", because it is quite "long" on gut-wrenching emotion -- sorrow, empathy, fear, and even pure joy and delight! A hearty, "Bravo!" to everyone involved on every level with this project. You should be pleased and proud! It is refreshing to see that there are writers, directors, actors and producers who still care about producing top quality works which uplift, rather than disgust. I hope anyone who routinely complains about the usual quality of stuff coming out of Hollywood has an opportunity to see and support this film. Nothing else should be said about it, because it just needs to be seen. NOW. What are you waiting for?! What part of now don't you understand?
