Winner of the Best International Feature Film Award at the London International Film Festival in 2015, Vertical is a story of love and loss and the meaning of family. Alex Hunter (Morgan Lester) returns home from college for the funeral of the mother (Chuti Tiu) from whom she had become estranged. Through the stories and memories of her mother's rock climbing friends, a group of women known as the 'Rock Chicks', Alex becomes acquainted with the woman she never knew in life, and begins to find her own links to her mother along the way. Also starring Irene Bedard, Wolfgang Bodison, Carson Aune, Marshall Bell, and Elsie Kate Fisher, the film includes breathtaking cinematography by Ignatius Fischer, utilizing the scenery of the beautiful San Jacinto mountains of Southern California. With a strong cast of known actors and new talent, Vertical leans heavily on heartfelt sentiment and great dialog to drive this award-winning ensemble piece.

Sneak Screening
15 January 2013 | by SojonesySee all my reviews

Why are people reviewing a film that isn't even completed yet? Vertical was shown as a sneak preview of an unfinished edit. It was a fund raising event for the people of Idyllwild. The film isn't finished yet and already reviews are showing up on IMDb? What's up with that? Allow the filmmakers to finish the project. Until that happens, how can anyone review the film? It makes no sense. I've never seen this before. The film is being readied for film festivals in 2014. It's being listed as in post production. Relax people. There were some great films at the Idyllwild Cinema Festival. Review some of those. And wait for Vertical to hit theaters or Netflix before reviewing it.
