Here comes a new, smart storyteller. Thank God.
9 February 2008 | by dajashevilleSee all my reviews

I've watched this project unfold from the beginning. The movie was shot in my hometown. I witnessed this small band of artists pool their resources and talent. It was inspirational. Now the movie has been completed and I got a chance to see it at Sundance. It was incredible. Chusy, the director, has a huge heart. His passion for life and his uncompromising honesty has created the most unique autobiographical film I have ever seen. His choice to use mostly untrained actors fascinates me. These individuals came from all walks of life. Subway manager, janitor, construction worker, etc. They were given the opportunity to explore humanity in a way most folks never do. I had a chance to talk to some of the cast at Sundance. This was not simply a movie to them, it was a journey. Dare I say, spiritual journey. They were given the chance to discuss topics ranging from terrorism to love. They were given the chance to experience perspectives that were not their own. To me this is beautiful, powerful, everything storytelling should be. The performances were fantastic. Several members of the cast have been contacted by the largest talent agencies in the business! I believe the world needs more movies like this. Opportunities for people to grow, expand, change. Thank you, Chusy and Jennifer, for your compassion and bravery. It has not gone unnoticed.
