This GREAT film is worth a watch!
2 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film is a brilliant, well-acted masterpiece! What touched me the most was Noah Silverman's acting, but all of the young actors performances were incredible.

They are why you should see this film. Illness is not a bubblegum Disney film, nor a dry Hollywood film; it is a movie that captures mental health issues in a poignant, non-candy coated manner that is dead on. I saw this movie only a couple months ago and was blown away by it's style and acting. It is rare that you see such fresh, relaxed and deep performances that the actors in this film offered. Although this is not a feature film, it is a genuine, inspiring short that is so refreshing-being so different than the films Hollywood often gives us. I give this film a 10+ and recommend it to everyone. You will benefit from it's message and it's wonderful acting.
