An Independent Gem
What a wonderful romance, splendidly played by a phenomenal cast. In particular: The female lead, Erin Mulgrew was simply amazing; and Chris Morris, who masterfully executed an incredibly risky supporting role. Each of the major characters in this picture had the potential of becoming a caricature or worse. The film makers took on the challenge, wrote a brilliant script and found the perfect people to fill the roles. this is what independent film is supposed to be, people making movies where they are with the talent that is already there. This is very much a Philadelphia production, but it gives me hope for all the regional film in this country. There is a massive unseen talent base in cities outside of New York or Los Angeles, and this film is a shining example of what is possible in contemporary American film making.
