"The Dead Kid" finds a nice balance between tones of humor and sadness. It is an easy film to surrender yourself to because you can feel the filmmaker conveying that which many films lack: honesty.

The ability to find subject material that an audience can truly relate to can be a difficult task. Creating the experience to move an audience in line with that message, however, takes serious skill.

Though the director is only in the early stages of his career, he shows he can create a film that pulls the audience into a complete world. He allows you to travel alongside the protagonist with complete security knowing that your time -- and the experience -- are well worth it.
