The reviews are deceptive
17 January 2013 | by moviedp1983See all my reviews

I saw this film last year at the Newport film festival. I had high expectations from the highly seasoned cast and was greatly disappointed. The negative parts that stood out were, 1. the lighting (was terrible )2. The cinematography was at best amateurish 3. The script, the acting and especially the Direction was sub par, and thats being kind. I truly thought it was a very low budget ,film school production. i really don't understand the glowing reviews UNLESS this movie was completely re-cut and edited , but i doubt that could salvage it.. The much earlier reviews of this reflect my experience with this film. I wanted to love this film and then I saw it and Oy gevalt it was painful. I would not be surprised if the glowing reviews were somehow connected with the filmmakers or actors, which would be unconscionable, were that the case. I cannot see how an honest, objective person can see this film and be pleased with it. Even the awards are questionable. I don't get it. The earlier reviews pretty much are spot on.
