Good Cast!
24 January 2013 | by CasteRforlifeSee all my reviews

Great cast. I enjoyed the film and it was very inspiring.... The director did a fine job bringing out the best performances from the actors.......... Including the dog! :)

I think they did a fine job with telling the story and the locations were great! Not sure what the budget was... However i am sure it was not a studio budget... So well done Cast and Crew! It was a true story that truly touched me! In more ways then one! I think it's worth watching 100%. I also wondered how many days they shot? Looks like it was shot in Miami? Right? Or no? Would anyone on here know about this? I would love to get these questions answered! Thanks-

Cheers.
