The best kind of comedy
31 January 2020 | by evanferrante1See all my reviews

Be Like Trees tugs on the heartstrings while simultaneously causes one to erupt in uproarious laughter...multiple times throughout viewing. And it nails this rare combination by speaking some serious truths. This is the best and most effective form of comedy, tackling truthful and relatable circumstances. Shot on an IPhone, on a bare bones budget, armed with true grit and passion, you can tell the filmmaker and Star Brian Drolet and his amazing cast have put every fabric of their skin in the game. They're all in and it shows. Can't wait to see what Brian creates next.
