I watched this with a little hesitation, because low budget indie movies can suck to the point of being painful. You don't need multimillion dollar budgets to make a good movie, but often a little money can make the difference between lame and pretty good. Luckily in this case it all comes together rather well. There's a few instances of wooden acting and the typical plot glitches, but overall the folks behind this movie did a wonderful job with what they had. While everyone did a pretty good job, the two female leads were superb. I hope to see them again, because they had the perfect "girl next door" looks and managed to come off so real that it made me feel like I knew them. Well done and I hope these guys get another chance to make a movie. Nice pacing, great scenery and an involving storyline made this worth a watch.
