An Excellent Debut
9 December 2012 | by cole-551-988571See all my reviews

Writer/Director Edd Blott's A Tale of Delight is delightful. It invites us into the life of someone we all know but who has never been willing to be known this intimately: someone dealing with mental illness. That this journey elicits laughs, frustration, and empathy is a testimony to its insight and skillful storytelling.

I saw the film last week and have been thinking about it ever since. It is an uncomfortable viewing by design. But a worthy one. There are at least two scenes that include some of the most human and revealing dialogue I have heard this year.

Prior to seeing this film I was not familiar with any of the performers involved. I'm now looking forward to what each of them does next.
