What's it like to have the world in the palm of your hands? Few get to experience this. What's it like to not be able to get out of your own way and sabotage your own success... Yeesh Gerard Garilli's performance takes you into the world of such a character. This movie keeps you on the edge of your seat feeling emotions of hope and frustration all at the same time. It's nice to also say the comedic timing and relief comes exactly when you need it most! I see a star in the making. An up-and-coming genius both behind and in front of camera. Watch out, Hollywood! I will 100% be ready for what comes next from this excellent young talent!
