Trivia

During the Q&A session for a 2016 festival screening of the film in New York City, when asked if he had any advice for aspiring young filmmakers in the crowd, writer/director George A. Pappy Jr. replied: "Given my experience over the past ten or twelve years, I'd say this: Making a good film (or two) is certainly possible despite all the odds stacked against you. However, even if you do succeed on that front, it doesn't guarantee that you'll be able to make a viable (and consistent) living as an independent filmmaker, especially someplace like New York or LA, where the cost of living is very high. It's a funny business, especially nowadays, and the financial rewards are not always as merit-based (or inevitable) as you'd expect from virtually any other line of work. It's important to know this going in as it may eventually inform your decision to stay or to leave the industry. Whatever you decide, I wish you good luck.". See more »

A Must See!
24 June 2012 | by oliver2224See all my reviews

I attended the screening of this movie last year and very much enjoyed it. It follows the experiences of an ex-con just released from prison as he attempts to reintegrate with society. The cast features such notables as Kenny Johnson, Rainn Wilson and Brad Dourif. Excellent acting, directing and screen writing! It's amazing what the cast and crew has done with a limited budget - the film has some really exceptional storytelling and you become fully invested in the success of the main character despite the feeling that all the odds are stacked against him. If only more movies made this kind of effort to develop the psyches of their main characters!
