A rare family oriented thriller
25 February 2020 | by markzilla-65943See all my reviews

Not sure how many movies most people watch weekly, but being a movie buff throughout my lifetime, I've watched more than most. It was a pleasure seeing Emerald Run at its Premiere in San Jose. There are movies out there that seem to be somewhat repetitive with story lines we've all watched time and again, just with a different cast. Not Emerald Run. Refreshing to watch a captivating cast, a storyline that keeps you guessing till the very end, with stunning, but harsh desert scenery. Welcoming to the big screen, Marialisa Caruso in her very first debut. Best supporting actress at several of the film festivals in Milan and London, Marialisa was also a co- writer with her Father/producer Anthony Caruso. On the edge of my seat to see what this father, and daughter duo will work together on next. Family fun was intended, so take the whole family. Producer Anthony Caruso did.
