Lovely work
3 July 2006 | by malibuhaSee all my reviews

I also had the rare opportunity to see this lovely short. I feel that it captured the essence of what we all go through at one of the essential turning points in our lives. In this case the journey of a young girl who is captured in a small town and the decision she has to make for her future. It was haunting and intoxicating with strong performances and visual images. I would like to see a full length feature of this story and see more of the journey. For me it was one of the special highlights of the Los Angeles film festival. Andrea Janakas the writer/director did a wonderful job of re-creating the tension and questions raised in the late 1970's. Almost mirroring today's dilemmas.
