| An opening to remember..
As for me and my review: I can't wait to get my autographed copy on DVD!! The cast is amazing, the music too... I can't wait to watch it again!

I love The Undeserved! And loved screening it (twice) (Sept @ the Mill Valley Film Festival) The event was an adventure indeed and such a great team of people to be around!

Some might refer to the Undeserved as a sad or rather a raw look in to human and social dysfunction. However , although it feels at times somewhat dark or edgy I believe the filmmakers and cast embraced just that!! Thus it becomes more beautiful ...the beauty then underlines both the weakness and the strengths of the characters. It ties in to survival (what I think of most while watching it). The very strong female characters are rare these days and most appreciated. If this film is seen by the right people... there are awards awaiting this awesome indie flick!

From the website: The Undeserved was shot in an actual school in Bellows Falls, Vermont. The script was developed by Director Brad Coley and the actors through an unusually long and deep immersion in the community. The story and style of the film reflect the Shakespearean notion of holding a mirror up to life.

" During production, events occurred that seemed to shape and foretell our story- a student shooting and several tragic accidental deaths shadowed us from beginning to end. Thankfully, many teachers, students and parents stuck with us through a long and complicated creative process. working on the film or just hanging out with us and sharing their lives, opinions and daily struggles, the members of the school and community greatly informed our sense of what we were doing. The film has a resonance and texture that could be called organic in that it seems to grow from a real living place. We took a long time cultivating the story and these characters, and tried, often under great pressure, to remain as true to ourselves as we were to them. -Director Brad Coley
