Storyline

In a dystopian future where pain and emotion have been suppressed by a government-issued drug called Torpase, Joshua Barrett (Tommy Martin) coasts through the monotony of his repetitive, workaday life. But when he's kidnapped by a rebellious priest (Richard Hackel), Joshua is exposed to a world beyond Torpase, changing everything he thought he knew about what it means to live. Also starring Louie Lawless, Amy Hunt, and Kyle Dal Santo, "Cheery Point" examines the necessity of pain and despair and "covers a wide range of possibilities that this country, as a whole, could face" (IMDb review). Written by Anonymous

Awful Acting
10 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

The idea the film attempted to portray could easily make a good film, and may well have been the basis for the 2014 film the Giver. Unfortunately, it was executed very poorly. The acting punctuated the overall lack of talent of direction. The production value of the film was OK, the camera quality was decent however there were several scenes where the audio sounded a bit like a high school project, when combined with the music it was nearly impossible to here the dialog, which may not have been a bad thing.

All in all I think the Giver took the idea of this film and added all of the missing pieces to make a good film, that being said there is a clear budget difference.

I am sad to say that this film is not watchable due to the acting and direction quality. I can not recommend it though the idea behind it was good.
