Must see film
11 September 2013 | by ken-gavinSee all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see this film at its UK premiere in London as part of the 2013 British Urban Film Festival (BUFF). The story (based on the director and writer Jesse Quinones own experiences) is powerful and moving, which linked to amazing acting from an outstanding cast, makes this a must see movie.

The film takes the viewer on an emotional roller coaster ride evoking powerful and conflicting feelings towards each characters vulnerability, failings, and ultimate achievements within a tempestuous and difficult relationship.

Andre Royo and Daisy Haggard give outstanding, multi-faceted and nuanced performances in their roles as the stepfather and mother of 12 year old Josh, played with skill and assurance by Luca Oriel. They are supported by strong performances from Hans Howes as Josh's grandfather and Sean McConaghy as Rabbi Brookstein.

I can heartily recommend this film to moviegoers in search of rewarding experience from an uplifting, engaging, well made film.
