| Outstanding Script and Cast!
The drama SOCKS AND CAKES, written and directed with aplomb by Antonio Padovan, is an engaging character study about the petty jealousies and unhappiness all of us face on the deep, dark road to love and understanding.

Timothy J. Cox leads a stellar cast as Harry, a rumpled literature professor, still in love with his ex-wife Amanda (Kirsty Meares), now married to the suave, but not so smooth Richard (Jeff Moffitt).

Harry is a guest at a dinner party hosted by Amanda and Richard in their Greenwich Village apartment. Other guests at the party include the ultra cocky David (Ben Prayz) and his charming French girlfriend Sophie (Alex Vincent). The tag line for the film is ''all will be revealed'' and I will leave it at that, as I don't wish to give too much away, but I way say the the tag line does not lie.

Padovan's script shows us the angst, the tears and insecurities that come with relationships, but he also shows us the fear and turmoil that often comes with living within one's own skin. The films' focus is mostly on Harry and Amanda; his loss of the only woman who may have truly loved him and her, the loss of her second marriage.

The results are heartbreaking and heartwarming and credit goes to Padovan's outstanding script and to the fantastic performances of Timothy J. Cox and Kirsty Meares, each showing us individuals filled with primal doubts about their own existence.
