This movie has HEART
18 August 2020 | by markstylesnycSee all my reviews

All the actors do an EXCELLENT JOB.. While it would be great if they had a big budget; this movie can stand on it's own.. The scenes with the two boys was incredibly sweet, and touching. And I felt as uncomfortable watching as Luka appeared in his first adult sexual encounter.. My heart ached for him. Having worked in gay clubs for many years, and hearing stories of boys who ran away or got thrown out of their homes and what they had to do to survive. . I am so grateful I didn't have to go thru that.

The music and songs were decent. Perhaps not the smoothest transition, from acting to singing but in my opinion most musicals have that difficulty

This movie was a real 'slice of life'. And everyone obviously was very into making this delightful movie

I look forward to future productions from Damon Cardasis, and the talent he pulls together. I thought this was excellent.
