Moving Indie Drama!
19 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Arclight in Hollywood and was very impressed by the acting and the story/script. I was lucky enough to stay for a Q&A after the film and found out that the movie was produced by two sisters and is based on actual events. Knowing that there's truth the story adds a whole new depth to the drama, making it an inspiring tale. Without getting into the plot (the trailer is available on youtube), I'd just like to say that this is a moving film that will keep you captivated until the end. Definitely recommended! Although female driven (and not enough movies are!!), this is a movie that both genders can watch, relate to and learn from.
