Just When You Think You've Seen 'Em All
27 April 2016 | by johndorcicSee all my reviews

I caught this at the Manhattan Film Fest and I was pleasantly wowed. Usually at these film fests, as of late, there are crazy (and poorly acted) videos (cause you can't call em movies) that are either about thugs, zombies or nothing. Mommy's Box is so different. An actual story with characters you can relate to that have a complex back story...so you can relate AND care about them! The film is almost entirely well acted, the filming is BEAUTIFUL and the score is so evocative. What I also liked is that there were REASONS for everything happening. The bad characters weren't comic book bad....there was a well explored story as to WHY. When I heard it won the best feature film award at Manhattan Film Fest I wasn't surprised.

ps- I took a star off for the acting of a couple secondary characters and for having to explain to people I wasn't seeing a dirty movie!!!!
