Kevin Scott Richardson,
Dostoevsky-inspired drama set in 1900s Prague about a bored arrogant playboy who spends time seducing other men's wives and dueling. He begins an affair with his friend's wife, but falls in love with her. She becomes pregnant. Is it his?
Abby Taylor believes in her soul that she was meant to be a mother. But starting late in life, she and her husband were forced to try fertility treatments that left them broke and without options. Looking for a fresh start now that they have decided to officially "stop trying", Abby attends a transformational "Breakthroughs and Miracles" seminar led by best-selling author and self-help guru, Sarah Linda McCormick. But what she isn't telling anyone, including her husband, is that she is really there to meet with an anonymous sperm donor that she found online and take one more chance at a miracle. Even if it means she could lose so much more in the process.Written by
Avery Clyde that is the real stand out. Deep emotions, without over acting. Restrained, yet moving. More than worth a watch!
"If I Could Tell You" is a short film (I'd call it a mini-feature) which tackles a unique, dramatic topic and does so with style. These days who doesn't know someone who has struggled with infertility if we haven't struggled ourselves? This movie dives into that topic and scratches the surface of dramatic possibilities with the issue. I could see this a pilot for a prime cable show, or streaming series. All aspects of the production (the writing and directing, the cinematography, sound, and particularly the acting) are first rate. Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson may surprise you with his acting chops, and there is a great turn from the ageless Sharon Lawrence and comic relief from Jim O'Heir (of PARKS & REC), as well as Ryan Spahn, but it is the lead performance by the relatively unknown Avery Clyde that is the real stand out. Deep emotions, without over acting. Restrained, yet moving. More than worth a watch!
