Worth a watch
21 July 2017 | by timetowrite-32654See all my reviews

I give this such a high rating for the lead actor Michael C. Freeland and the lead actress Rebekah Nelson. Both are excellent to watch, and their chemistry is undeniable. The movie starts off a little slow, but really picks up when Amy (Nelson) enters. The relationship between her and Hidell (Freeland) is what makes this movie worth watching. It is real, genuine, and well written. The rest of the actors in the movie could stand to take a lesson or two to keep up better with these two, but it is an indie film, so it can be expected. The cinematography is okay. A few scenes it is a bit too shaky. Sound quality and music though are great. All in all, the movie is good and worth a viewing. Ending is something I didn't totally expect.
