This is another one of those shot-on-digital (which isn't a bad thing) movies, with a multiple storyline structure. If you enjoyed "Magnolia", or some of Robert Altman's stuff, this should be right up your alley. The performances are quite strong- I didn't see a single bad actor in this movie.
I think I have only two small gripes, really- A good portion of the beginning is too dark to see what's going on-just a lot of grainy video blobs. (But the rest of the film is well-lit) Also, the film could have used a little humor for balance. (It's VERY heavy drama. If you pick this one up, I suggest following it up with a comedy- I mean, even "Schindler's List" had a few chuckles...)
Bottom line: If you love the serious stuff and/or the independent film movement, give this a chance.
