professional and profound
29 April 2009 | by jpm6871See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Boston Film Festival before a feature and I didn't know anything about it, but it ended up being much better than the feature that came after it and I'm glad we got to see it. The acting was great, especially the main characters, and the result was very emotional and powerful. There is a twist ending that I won't spoil, but I was very surprised by the way that different stories came together in such a short time. After the movie I felt like I would want to see these stories developed in a feature, because they were very condensed. The movie was also filmed very professionally and looked like a mini-feature, and there was a lot of attention to colors and style. The idea behind the story was profound and I liked how it used pool balls as an allegory in a clever way.
