Well executed
2 March 2011 | by trentsexySee all my reviews

I thought the film had a lot of edge and twists to it. It had a current day love story with a classic edge. I also felt the characters had depth and love triangle was matched well, with my favorite character being Derek because he seemed to never have dull moments in the story. My wife on the other hand loved Angelo and felt his desire for fulfillment from the presence of his first and true love. He and Angelo played their good boy, bad boy roles well. Now the leading lady was beautiful. She carried her role well and showed her vulnerability in many scenes of this film. I am looking forward to the release of this film so others can see a great independent body of work.
