Zachary Levy is to be commended for producing and directing this very poignant reach for fame in the gentle soul of one man, Stanley Pleskun who uses the moniker 'Stainless Steel'. A man with a dream of notoriety, our character is a man strong enough to bend a penny with just his fingers. When Stainless Steel reaches middle age, career disappointments and difficult personal relationships that begin to test his strengths - aging parents, his alcoholic brother, his beautiful but timid announcer-girlfriend, and his show-biz agents and strength rivals. All the while we honor a man who simply dreams and tries to overcome the role life has dealt him. This is a film that lingers in the heart and mind long after the closing credits.
