Alone with M. Carter
18 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw Alone with Mr. Carter in Montreal and I'm not surprised it got selected at Frameline San Francisco and so many other places. The script, the actors, the photography all contribute to the creation of a magical moment. The young Robert Naylor broke my heart playing the homosexual child. All he does is so deep and sensitive. I recommend everyone to go see it, 10/10!

I already knew Jean-Pierre Bergeron as a wonderful actor. Alone with M. Carter is his first effort as a writer/director. I didn't know he was equally talented in those other areas. Jean-Pierre Bergeron, you did a beautiful job! Bravo! :-)
