Quotes

[first lines]
The Boy: I always imagined there'd be a time in my life where everything would line up and the universe would reveal its plan to me. What was once confusing and overwhelming would reassemble into something so clear and so bright, there's no way I wouldn't know what to do. And I guess you could say that's what happened.

Loved It
13 October 2014 | by christianchatcommunitySee all my reviews

I found the movie awesome to watch. Unlike the previous review of it, I am struck by Chris Lowell's face and thought that it was used well.

I say this because I found Chris well able to convey strong emotion just by looks in his eyes and the expression on his face. His eyes and face said it all and there was no need for dialog. I get why the film maker just had a lot of shots of his face. Those pictures were worth a thousand words.

Yes, Chris Lowell has a pretty face, but if you look past the face to see what was beneath, you get the pain his character is in.

I was deeply touched by his portrayal because it captured the deeper heart level of what was going on internally for the character. I think he carried the film and hope to see him much much more.
