Leaving Barstow was an awesome film. The acting and story was great. The film is well-paced, never drags, and has its characters pegged pretty well. The cast is real and are believable. The film seems very real because 18 is a very difficult age. The main character in the film is faced with the hard choice of staying at home and carrying for his mother or leaving for college. This movie is filled with humor and drama. After what seems like forever, Leaving Barstow is now available to rent and to buy. Netflix, Hollywood Video, and some Blockbusters are carrying the film. I look forward to seeing more movies from Kevin Sheridan.
