This film is a good example of the better end of low-budget indie films. Largely character-driven, a gritty tragic romance/thriller which manages to avoid most of the clichés of the genre. Production values are fairly good; although the sound quality isn't quite up to Hollywood standards, the visuals hold their own. Worth the time to watch.
A nice surprise is that this film seems to show the director has talent in genres outside the slasher/horror direction of much of his other work. He also clearly cares about getting a script fully completed and solid before trying to put it on film, so you don't get a sense of rushed or weak writing.
This film is currently on Canadian tour with the writer/director (and sometimes some of the actors) rather than via a distributor, and appearing in some film festivals, so you may get a chance to see it locally. If so, I suggest you do, as you'll probably get the chance to discuss it with the writer/director afterwards.
