Nuanced yet strong film about friendship
17 November 2016 | by foosmastahSee all my reviews

Most of the time a film has to have a really strong story to pull an audience in. And then there are other films where the characters are so well written, one couldn't care less about the story. Such is the case with director Josh Locy's clever debut.

The plot is simple...a perennial loser recently released from prison makes a new friend, hustles to earn money, and works to win back the girl of his dreams.

The likability of the characters is undeniable. Royo and Sample put in stellar performances as the quirky leads. What starts as a man-on-a-mission type film becomes something so much more powerful. And an idea as simple as the beauty of friendship is truly what shines through in this lovely little indie gem.

If you like character-driven films about people on the margins, please check this one out. It is well worth your time.
