A compelling 90-minute film that lasts 150 minutes
4 October 2020 | by cruzarts-73946See all my reviews

This is a valiant effort from novice writer/director and a cast of mostly first-timers, but there is so much reenacted material that is simply weak and doesn't propel the story. I'm guessing that writer/director David Risotto had a heavy hand in editing, although others are credited as editor and assistant editor.

What drew me to the film and kept me watching is the strength of the story itself.This property deserves a stronger treatment.
