A dramatic look into the lives of four characters as they collide into each other
12 August 2014 | by mcobleigh6211See all my reviews

Let me preface this review by saying I am absolutely no movie-critic and I do not have any credentials to seriously rate this movie, however based on past movie-going experiences and some serious love of the dramatic here is my opinion:

I thought the movie was chalk-full of amazing cinematography. It could have been the fact that I live close to the film's location, and have seen some of the scenery before, but the shots were just gorgeous. Also, the location itself fit with the theme and feel of the movie quite well.

The actors were good. Judging the movie for what it is: a short film turned feature film with a slew of actors cast out of a small pool in Wisconsin, it was great. There was a little bit of overacting from a few of them, but in all honesty the overacting fit with the theme.

Loved, loved, loved the cameos by the director and producer in the film - thought they were done very tastefully.

The overarching theme of lives colliding into one another to change a few hard-knock lifestyles into manageable seemed to work very well. It was relate-able and heart wrenching. I cared for those characters, and in the end isn't that the point?

A fantastic feature film by new-ish producer Kyle Downs and director Michael Bachochin. Very impressive! Keep them coming!
