Finally... some soul!
23 June 2010 | by margetwormwoodSee all my reviews

I have watched and enjoyed films my whole life. I have gone to the theater at least once a week for 20 years. I guess I am what one might call a "movie buff".

I like to believe I know what the difference is between a good and a bad film. Sneakers & Soul is one of the good ones.

In a time when big studio films have lost their way, it was nice to sit and enjoy a film with an actual story. Long gone are the days of films with substance. One must venture into the world of indie films to enjoy what used to be the standard for Hollywood.

Sneakers & Soul brought me back to those days.

It was a great film with colorful characters (my favorite being a young woman named Vicki) who take you on a journey across the state of New Jersey, by foot.

The characters encounter many obstacles along the way, some funny, some serious, and learn the value of friendship as they make the long trek to New York.

This film has a great message and leaves you feeling happy in the end. It reminded me what it was like to be a kid again. I hope everyone will get a chance to see this film.
