A must-see on it's won, but so, so much more!
18 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Loved the color and feel of the entire piece! From the opulence down to the decadence it fills the film canvas with a rainbow array of what a life of privilege in the South might be like. And, Although a short (under 40 minutes), I can absolutely see this as as a TV series or a feature film with sequels. The range of characters in the upscale, totally dysfunctional Southern household would easily supply 5 seasons worth of stories and beyond. From drug addicted, carousing Michael, who is a serial "marryer" to his money-hungry ex-wife, Kelly, all the way to Michael's Nanny, Annie Mae who rules the roost, it is a chaotic glimpse of how the other half might live. A bit of a Southern Upstairs/Downstairs with a modern twist it could easily entertain and pique the curiosity of the viewing public. Wish I had the money to invest in producing this for one of the cable networks as the risqué tone and antics probably wouldn't make it on network television!
