"Hank and Asha" - An Entertaining and Captivating Long-Distance Romance
25 March 2014 | by RMcDaniel10See all my reviews

"Hank and Asha" is a great film in many ways.

The caliber of writing in this small film is truly exceptional. Some of the dialog appears to be improvisational, but my guess is that the majority was written by the filmmakers and there's not a false note of dialog in the entire movie.

You would never know that this movie was filmed on a shoestring budget. The cinematography is outstanding. This film looks like anything but a low budget movie. Beautifully shot!

I can only imagine the difficulties of editing a film like this. It seems as if it was edited down to the best possible 73 minutes. Yes, it's a short film, but it doesn't feel like one. Kudos to the editor for not being tempted to turn this into a two hour movie.

Both lead actors are extremely good and believable. I fully expect to see the male lead (Andrew Pastides) in an ABC TV sitcom soon, or if not, then he could be the next Paul Rudd.

Finally, if this is James E. Duff's first film, I can't wait to see what's next. He strikes me as an extremely gifted director. Again, there is not a false note in the entire movie.

"Hank and Asha" is a must-see. Certainly one of the best independent films of 2013.
