Intense and emotional
12 September 2009 | by BernardoLimaSee all my reviews

Tate Bradley is 25 year old African-American man. Tate is engaged so he obviously cared about the future at some point, but just a few days before his birthday Tate tries to commit suicide. He does not succeed and since his problems still exist he falls into a depressive state hiding inside his house with the blinds closed smoking cigarettes after cigarettes.Something is killing Tate, the question is what? As his fiancé,friends and family visit him to see how he is and to offer their support we learn more about each character,about Tate's past and his demons...This film is an intense character study and it is extremely well directed.The story unfolds nicely and at a good pace and the acting was good, specially Jocko Sims(Tate), he really nailed the part,we can really feel the pain and the agony of his character,Tate; his suffering was quite evident.With just a few actors and a few locations and a simple story the director, Leon Lozano, was able to do a very intense and emotional independent film that tops many of the big budget Hollywood flicks.
