A poignant film about the older folks in our lives
This short film (50 min.) is a winner! It draws you in and makes you think about older folks life experiences. All of us, but especially the younger generation would do well to pay more attention to the older folks in their life. This film teaches us to learn as much as we can from our elders while we have the opportunity. If you are looking for a movie with a lot of action and/or special effects, this isn't the film for you. The filmmakers have kept this one short and simple and to the point. This little gem is about relationships. I thought the pacing of the film was just right. The characters are a little quirky, but to me that seems very true to life. I think one of the things which I like about this movie is that most folks could relate to someone in their lives who are like the characters presented here. I especially enjoyed the soundtrack in this film as it seems to fit very well with the flow. Overall, I would say this film gets a thumbs up by me. While it is not perfect, I still have to say, "Well done!"
