The Premiere was Great!
5 August 2009 | by raylantzSee all my reviews

This is a poignant and moving independent film.

Richard Fulvio's performance was understated, consistent and excellent throughout. It is difficult for three actors to effectively carry such long and difficult scenes. This film had flashes of brilliance that reminded me of Glengarry Glen Ross. The three clear and effective acts with outstanding original music built to a stunning and exhausting climax. This film sheds light on the complexity and collateral heartbreak that accompanies all wars. I hope this film and Richie's acting gets notice and praise at this and other film festivals. Great job to all who were involved in making this film.
