Sweet Sweet Movie.
15 January 2013 | by sashasmith1129See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Idyllwild Cinema Festival in Idyllwild California on Sunday January 13. It is such a wonderful film. Full of heart and great acting. I love female driven stories, and was surprised that it was written by a man. Stephen Savage deserves huge credit for bringing this special film to light. I loved it! The lead character, Alex, was someone I related to so easily from my own experiences growing up with a single mom. And the rock climbing theme was such a wonderful way to bring the characters all together. Very unique. Perfect Chick Flick. I'm sure the film will gain a huge audience. It really is something special.
