A Beautifully told story from the eyes of a female protagonist
29 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

Pretty Rosebud is not your typical relationship drama. The story unfolds as the lead character is a product of a marriage of two cultures; one more prominent than the other. It shows the influences of the old country and the clashing of the new ways of their offspring. Claire also has the troubles of a broken marriage and tries to pick up the pieces and drown herself in her work as most workaholics do.

The story is very relatable to the first born children of immigrants in the US and the story is all too real. The actors did a phenomenal job of taking the dialog and made this story come to life. I was compelled to see what happens next. Each scene was beautifully shot and the production value was close to some indie studio productions.

This indie darling and festival award winner is definitely worth the watch. I'd keep an eye out for this one.
