Very good film; highly recommended
4 May 2005 | by philham2See all my reviews

The use of "flashbacks" made it a bit difficult to follow, but the story came thru OK. The actors/actresses did a GREAT job & the directing was superb. I enjoy seeing films made in my home state (IN) & this was one of the best. Kudos to all who made it happen. I viewed the film as part of a "film festival". It was shown at a theater that was unfamiliar to me & I wasn't comfortable with their "routine", which was to "repeatedly interrupt" the viewer during the show to sell them refreshments. I feel a film of this nature requires a concentrated effort to absorb the intended message & the interruptions were a detriment. I will make an effort to obtain this film on DVD & watch it without interruption in the comfort of my home in the future.
