Storyline

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquility with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual.There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, The Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time. Written by Riding Hood Motion Pictures

Surprisingly Good
13 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw At Dances With Films and never spent so much time thinking of a film There is no doubt, this is an amazing combination of film meets movie and art meets commerce. It is no ordinary movie. The mood and stories and characters keep building, and when it finally comes down, I feel this immense sense of relief and wonder at how Erik Peter Carlson was able to come up with something so clever and intertwining and wondrous, and was able to pull it off. The cast, as you have probably read, is superb. I have never been so impressed. This film has "restored my faith in the film making industry. To see these actors, crew, and the writer/director/genius at work is inspiring." These people obviously love their craft.

The soundtrack, oh, the soundtrack. When listening to the songs, I can picture each exact moment as if I was watching the movie all over again, and it brings unexplainable feeling. Daily Bread and Gliss' songs, especially, are a perfect fit to a perfect story and mood. If you want to see glorious film making, acting, writing, and characters in action, I HIGHLY suggest you see The Toy Soldiers.
