Very interesting groove! See it!
12 April 2014 | by RainbowcanSee all my reviews

Caught this one at the Florida Film Festival in Orlando. Superb acting, interesting premise and 90 minutes went by in 45. Quirky and uplifting--as well as funny. O'Nan deserves backing from those big money Dilberts who front $$$$ for independent films. He has tremendous talent as both an actor and a director and with the requisite cash could do even greater things. The storyline is bewitchingly simplistic and predictable in the beginning but gradually becomes more complex and thought evoking as the movie progresses. There are a number of subtle underlying themes that expose the idiocy of racism, prejudice, stereotyping, etc., that are still practiced by some individuals who should realize it is the 21st century! Bottom Line--Go see this movie and Chu will love it and your heart will Blossom.
