Highly Recommended!
12 October 2013 | by mmreofxSee all my reviews

I checked out this movie and when I heard it was shot on an iPAD2 I thought it was going to be pure gimmick. BOY WAS I WRONG! Right from the gate I was introduced to characters that all people can identify with. The story pulls you in and gets your gray matter moving, something lacking in a lot of movies as of late. Cast was excellent! Director Aaron Mento manages to strike many cords with the audience while not subjecting them to gratuitous imagery....a Master, in my book, of storytelling. Have been recommending this film to everyone who asks if I've seen any good movies lately. Bold and provoking, this film does what most films lately don't.... it makes you think!
