Don't Miss Out
15 January 2016 | by ambuehl2000See all my reviews

Movie-making in the MidWest sometimes gets a bad wrap due to the perception that this part of the U.S. lacks what big cities like LA or New York offer . . . but it's a misconception . . . and Proximity is a true example of beautiful cinematography (Brett Frager), creative writing and directing (Dan Steadman), and talented actors. For local St. Louisans, you'll see some familiar news and radio personalities like Dan Gray, Kelly Jackson, Julie Tristan and even Cardinals player Adam Wainwright who brings the audience to laughter at every showing. The film is also an example of community working together to tell a story about making choices in love - something we can all relate to!
