Unusual poignant drama that brings characters together in a heartfelt manner.
27 April 2017 | by milroypicturesvideoSee all my reviews

Director B.R. TATALOVIC and ensemble did a wonderful job with this film. I was drawn into the story and truly felt for the characters. The actors are quite believable in their roles. One performer (portraying the heavy) does such a splendid job of stirring emotions, you want to reach into the screen and strangle him! A friend also attending the premiere was convinced an "actual thug" off the streets was used in the movie. She said "no" actor could be that "real" (a true compliment to a fine performer). Again, many kudos to the "entire" cast, crew and production company.

It was fun seeing movie veteran ERIC ROBERTS back in the limelight as a card dealer with a significant story to tell that comes full circle. The picture moves along at a nice pace due to competent editing. Nothing is dragged out for time. It touches base on the very feelings promoted in the fervid trailer. Also refreshing is the way religion is woven into the movie in a "positive" light. Although the film is raw and gripping with it's tale, the viewer is given a sense of decency with supporting characters providing Christian aid and compassion.

Everything else....the lush cinematography, locations, music, props, wardrobe, etc. are very well presented, and the direction by B.R. TATALOVIC is right on the money. The well composed story by ALEX RUSSO honestly brings out the frailty of human beings and the emotions of love, hate, passion, lust, greed and misfortune. I truly recommend seeing this outstanding indie film. You cannot watch this motion picture without empathy. Bravo!
