Amazing
18 July 2011 | by Kateali2See all my reviews

I have seen this movie twice with different people and all of us were mesmerized both times. I am always amazed at what comes from writer's minds, but this was an especially interesting idea and it really did make me thinks about the Strings in my life. I can't wait until it is in Theaters across the country. Billy Harvey reminded me of that old line "don't just act, stand there". He conveyed volumes with a look. Very impressive for a newcomer. I, too, would give this movie a Best Ensemble award. I wanted each and every one of them to win their particular fight. I also loved the music, particularly Billy's theme song. It was haunting. I was delighted when he won the award for Best Song. This is a very talented group of actors and I am hoping they get the recognition they deserve.
