The little Indie that could!
11 April 2013 | by (San Diego) – See all my reviews

After seeing the 2nd trailer for Matt's Chance my expectations began to rise so when I made the drive up from San Diego to the LA Indie Fest last month they were high.

The movie did not disappoint one bit.

The animated opening sequence was slick & fun and the movies music, done by Julien K perfectly paced the film.

Edward Furlong, Gary Busey and Brandy Kopp were great. Edi Zanidache and Bill Sorice were hilarious.

I enjoyed film maker Nicholas Gyeneys' last movie, The Penitent Man as well so I can't wait to see what he can do when he has the chance to work with a bigger budget and even bigger actors!

If you have the chance to see this on the festival circuit don't miss out!
