Marcus Wright (Daniel Dambroff) is in love with Gabby (Elise McNamara). A devastating accident nearly kills her and renders her in a vegetative state. She can no longer walk or talk. Marcus is determined to make good on his promise to marry her, but he is not only challenged by this unfortunate event but made to jump many unexpected hurdles, including fending off Gabby's mother Sandra (Aria Mckenna), who clings to Marcus and takes her relationship with him beyond both of their boundaries. Marcus then meets Elliot Thurston (Christopher Clawson), a published author who wrote the novel "Brilliant Mistakes," a story about the author's personal regret. Marcus is a big fan of Elliot's positive energy and subsequently his writing, and a bond of common loss, dreams and goals ties them together.

Great film with a compelling story
18 January 2016 | by delmorganSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed this film. I was drawn into the characters and the level of sympathy I developed for the characters was beyond what I expected. The film was beautifully shot in what appears to be Litchfield County. You can tell the director took his time with the details of the film and seemed to navigate well in the area with some beautiful shots. I see it was a low budget film but it looks like it cost a few million dollars. I thought the overall message was filled with ethos and pathos and there was a rather big surprise at the end, which i won't spoil! Sometimes it is surprising what independent films can put out there with limited resources and no-name actors. I enjoy seeing films that can carry deep subjects such as this, while telling stories that are truly transforming.
