This festival entry boasts two likable performances. Matt Guidry as an indisposed Mark, and Gregory G. Giles as his trusting friend, Joey, together create a charming portrait of companionship. The chemistry between the two actors is so ingratiating that the film takes on a timeless quality, despite topical references to politics and social situations. This is, of course, not a mainstream production, and it is apparent that the budget was limited. There are also many flaws and weaknesses present . . . yet, the two leads are so natural and convincing, and their characters' bonding so believable, that one is touched and impressed -- and ultimately moved. One looks forward to seeing Guidry and Giles in future films, and more of Eric Mueller's directorial work. ###
