Utterly charming!
13 September 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another wonderful, heartfelt piece of work from a true maverick independent filmmaker.

Great performances across the board, and lots of sweet surprises throughout.

I was particularly effected by young Jacob Switzer's performance as Sam, and his relationship with his father (played by Aaron Poole) felt totally genuine.

I appreciate how the filmmaker leaves just enough questions unanswered to keep the audience engaged without leaving everyone feeling lost.

For my money, there just aren't enough films being made nowadays with this kind of spirit.
