Heard good things about this independent film through some friends in Austin. Since it was showing a block from my new home in Dallas I figured why not check it out.
Wow! What a pleasant surprise. While it may take a little time to build in the beginning, the character development is worth it... love the stylistic black and white as it gives you a new perspective on watching those who are going through many of the same life's emotion we all have to deal with.
Anyway, it was enough to get me to write a first review here (not my last for sure). Directing was great... just enough style without being off putting. Characters were exceptional, as they spoke more through silence than dialogue, a lost art in today's world. While the acting was good or great even, across the board, special mention to the character Lee. Exceptional. Understated with depth and emotion. A fantastic performance!
