In Huntsville, sad truths come to light, with heartbreak and violence lingering in their wake, ultimately leaving both men changed forever.Written by
I saw this film when it had a showing at the Hollywood Film Festival. The cinematography and acting is wonderful. Especially the performances of Michael Clarke Duncan and Morgan Simpson. But, I was blown away by the story itself. It kept me guessing until the end. I totally got lost in the journey. It is visually a treat.
Simpson takes us on an arc from the depths of what life can give you. This film was solid from beginning to end.
I would highly recommend this film. I heard it is in limited release. I hope it comes back to Southern California. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Plus the soundtrack is amazing!
