﻿This movie really went out on a limb to tell a startlingly unconventional story. I cannot imagine being more excited about a film. Savannah Haske gave a performance, not only acting-wise but musically that is one for the history books (Academy Awards go to more well known actresses for lesser performances). I spoke with her after the screening and asked if she planned to release a CD, she said the music from "Piggie" is all she has. I hope she continues to gather more musical material as well as turn in such excellent performances as an actress. Dean Wareham(Galaxie 500 and Luna), like Dwight Yoakam, may convince more than a few actors to take guitar lessons instead of acting classes, he is amazing. Robert John Burke, who plays Fannie's Father (forgive me if that is incorrect, the character list is not complete) gives a very strong and moving performance. Alison Bagnall's direction of the script she wrote with Savannah is truly inspired. Using the images that blur the line between dreams and waking life she has created a movie raises the bar for cinematic storytelling and is simply unforgettable.
