Marcia Gay Harden,
Joseph Greco: The scene at 41:55 of the South Florida State Hospital as Chris sees it through a chain link fence is a cameo of sorts - the director is one of the "workers" walking past the building, "not because I wanted to, but because we had no one else and I needed someone in the background, walking, to liven up the shot."

I saw the film at the Sarasota Film Festival. At it's completion, the entire audience gave the film a standing ovation - truly a rare occurrence. I felt the performances by Joe Pantoliano and Marcia Gay Harden were inspired, the film provided a compassionate perspective on schizophrenia and the story was compelling. The subject is challenging to begin with, but this story not only highlighted a serious, often unspoken disease, it bought it out in a light that will prove inspirational for those who have been exposed to this life challenge. I was amazed at the realistic performance by young actor Devon Gearhart. Congratulations to Joe Greco - definitely a young filmmaker to watch!
