The truth about this film..
15 July 2013 | by garlygogsSee all my reviews

The Truth About Romance is indeed a romantic film but one that is a little bit different to others in this genre. It is one of those rare romcoms that will appeal to male and female viewers?

It tells the tale of unlucky in love Josh, his chance encounter with Emily and the adventure that follows. Also in the mix is the breakdown of the relationship his best friend Chris goes through with Zoe.

The comedy content is nicely balanced with the dramatic scenes and each actor holds their own.

The casting is spot on and you truly believe in these characters.

Jordan Greenhough gives an outstanding performance as Josh. There is a line towards the end of the film he delivers with such perfection, he sent shivers up my spine. An actor intended for greater heights.

Craig Asquith as Chris is a revelation and seems to have come from the Christopher Eccleston school of acting. With little experience in the acting profession, he certainly gives the more established actors a run for their money.

Danielle Jackson plays Emily. To look at her, you get the feeling that she would feel more at home in a period piece but that soon disappears when she starts to act. She manages to convince the viewer that she is indeed a free spirit and you believe that she is actually interested in Josh.

The final main part is Zoe, played by Donna Parry. A convincing performance as the girlfriend who loves Chris but knows deep down that the relationship is in decline.

The rest of the cast are very good but the main star of this film is the Writer and Director James G Wall. I find it hard to believe that the films budget was a mere £250. James has managed to write a beautiful script, find an outstanding cast and good locations and made a 90 minute film that is far superior to many films that have been released recently with bigger budgets. Yes it's not perfect but it is very close to it and if this is what he can do with £250 then I cannot wait to see what he makes with £250,000. A Director most definitely destined for great things.
