ITS A MUST SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
25 October 2018 | by crazynat-70733See all my reviews

I've seen TSP twice on the big screen and let me tell you, it's beyond amazing! It's inspirational, heart warming and it's for the entire family. The Samuel Project was beautifully written, I laughed, I cried and yes both times, it tells a story about Eli who has to do a art project for a class and he chooses his Grandfather Samuel which he learns that he was born in Germany and lived through the war. I can relate to Eli in so much especially that both our grandfathers names are Samuel, both times I've seen it, it reminded me of how much I miss hearing my grandparents stories and just being with them. The second time I went to go see it at the San Diego International Film Festival I went with my dad and my two Nephews, I loved seeing them three watch this incredible story together melted my heart, it couldn't be more perfect for a grandfather and his two grandchildren. Mikey (3 in a half years old) and Aiden (almost 2 years old) loved it as well as my dad did, Hal Linden is phenomenal as Samuel and Ryan Ochoa is phenomenal as Eli and they both gave a excellent performance. So what are you waiting for? Grab a box of tissues, purchase a ticket, buy some popcorn and enjoy this Oscar worthy film with Oscar worthy actors.
