The Best is Yet to Come
16 April 2007 | by usdzackSee all my reviews

Among the group of short films screened at the Sacramento International Film Festival, The Counter stood out in a class by itself, by far outshining the other short films in all areas. It's not surprising to find that this film has garnered critical acclaim throughout the festival circuit.

The production values, acting, and direction all stood out as strengths. The story was engaging; the ability of this film to take the viewer through a range of emotions and make the audience think was superb, especially in such a short time frame. It's clear that we can expect great things from Ms. Wagner as her career unfolds.
