A Film Staring a Bevy of up and coming Comedians
26 September 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"The Man from Orlando" stars a talented and young group of upcoming actors in a "dramedy" that is at times both edgy and hilarious. The team of actors (including Sam Edison of "Zero Charisma" fame) have great chemistry together it's fun to watch the situations and dilemmas these characters get themselves into in this film. Often in an indie film, the acting can be a difficult hurdle to overcome, but thankfully the ensemble effort of the actors involved helps to elevate this film above a lot of its indie competition.

Following the story of Orlando, a man who is trying to escape the deeds of his past, "The Man from Orlando" is an interesting display of rising talent that will be talked about for awhile.
