Quiet and special film
16 September 2015 | by pbirdieSee all my reviews

Highway to Dhampus, the English-Nepalese film, is a special film and a one to experience. Quiet, yet teeming with emotion and pathos... It's really the complete package: Super music, great scenery and well-acted by a cast of beautiful and sensitive actors, mostly unknown to me. The children in this film are the most natural and entertaining actors I've seen in a while. I was fortunate enough to catch this movie at The Rubin Museum of Art but It's definitely a film I'd like to see again and hope it will come to New York theaters. Starring: Rachel Hurd-Wood, Gunner Wright, Suesha Rana, Raj Ballav Koirala, Deshbhakta Khanal, Sayush Gurung Bajracharya, Sophie McShera, Vinzenz Kiefer, Masha Tokareva, Sunil Shrestha
