I just returned to Florida from Idyllwild California and the Idyllwild Cinemafest. I had the great pleasure of seeing Vertical at a separate sneak screening and have to say I was so impressed. The director was doing a lot of qualifying that lead me to believe the film was far from complete. But I have to say, it was well put together and seemed very complete to my wife and I. She cried often, and we both laughed a lot. And I will admit I was touched more than once by the movie. I hope it gets wide release when finished, as the story and the acting are superb for a small indie. Irene Bedard and the lead actress Morgan Lester are nothing short of magical together. But the soundtrack was the real treat here. The music is incredible. I look forward to seeing it again when it's released. Kudos to the director and the cast.
