Writer, director and actor Martin Papazian's debut film LEAST AMONG SAINTS movingly illustrates a man's hard-fought road towards reconciling with his better self. Coming home to a broken marriage and uncertain future, veteran Anthony Hayward (Papazian) thinks he's at the end of his rope. But when his troubled ten year-old neighbor, Wade (Tristan Lake Leabu), calls out for help, Anthony can't seem to turn away. To the dismay of the boy's embattled social worker (Laura San Giacomo), Anthony sets out on a fool's quest to help this heartbroken but hard to reach child find his long-lost father, who might not even exist. Yet in the midst of this new mission - the first that seems to matter since his return -- Anthony begins to come to grips with both the costs of war and the universal power of human connection. As the film builds to an emotional climax, Papazian finds both the gravity and the grace in ordinary, flawed characters pushed to extraordinary acts of compassion and decency. Written by
I saw the film last night in San Diego and was captivated from beginning to end. It was a very moving story, and the acting was brilliant and real, even the dog Milo's performance was excellent and a key part of the film. The screening was put on with Operation Homefront and I got to meet the lead actor and director Martin Papazian who was there for the event, and did a long Q&A talk after the show. He was incredibly nice and well spoken, and seems like a real down to earth guy. The event and movie left me an emotional wreck afterwords! I connected with the movie on many levels (my father in law is a Vietnam Vet left with many health issues, and Grandfather was a decorated WW2 pilot and Korean War POW survivor). Everybody should see this great movie with a powerful and inspiring story. I'm giving it a maximum star rating.
