Inspiring Story!
27 January 2014 | by info-908-552010See all my reviews

One of the most authentic movies I've seen in a long time. No frame is wasted. Every single moment is important. You don't want to look away even for one second. The story pulls you in immediately, and keeps you glued to your seat.

The characters are very believable and constructed with the greatest detail. They all have a story, a great character arch that makes you know who they are by the end of the movie.

Although mostly a black cast (up and coming actors), this is a universal story many can relate to.

The girl playing Nicolette (the main love interest, Nicolette Davidson) is a star in the making. And the writer-director-producer-editor (Elias Mael, who was apparently only 22 years old when he made the movie) is very promising with a bright future.

I recommend this movie to anyone looking to watch a great movie about reaching your dreams in life. It has drama, romance, funny moments, and everything you want in a story.

And the hour and half run time flies by. I didn't want it to end.
