A Film for All to Love
5 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

The cast was well picked, acting well acted, script well written and the directing fantastic.

For having produced this film on the side of University work, this talented bunch did an exceptional job. This film, suitable for couples and families sprinkles a little bit of humour, romance and sarcasm into your day but most importantly, realism depicted in an entertaining fashion.

Although this is the first project of many I'm sure, what really makes this film is how it brings to the audience complete and utter realism, and although Hollywood manages to capture the hearts of many, it cannot complete with film a bunch of recent graduates produced would you believe. Yet at the same time Dreamer by Design is in no way boring or too serious for our stars and directors have managed to use exaggeration twisting it into humour.

From nerds to weirdos, hot evil chicks and love and break ups laced with witty random moments this is a film that you will love and your whole family will love. Don't ever miss the chance to see it, even once.
