From the Heart.
20 May 2019 | by lunaventureSee all my reviews

This film is what Filming should be like. No special effects, just a great script and talented actors to portray the characters. Beautifully filmed, on a micro budget. wonderful direction. Xander Berkeley and Leo Marks, worked so well together. I felt like I was transported to LA 1949? This film was based on the screenwriters Father, Jerry Herst. CV Herst is not a first time writer. I expect to see more films that he writes and produces in the future. Happy to see this talent come to life,
