Won the Audience Choice award in Tampa and deservedly so
I caught this film when I attended the always fun Gasparilla International Film Festival.
I don't always go for indie films but this one absolutely won me over because of the simple but affecting story and the wonderful performances. The lead actor, Dan Abramovici, reminded me of a young John Cusack and indeed the tone mixed with the outstanding soundtrack brought to mind High Fidelity.
The film technically is also a remarkable technical achievement as it takes place almost entirely in one location but that never once fills constricting or repetitive. A testament to wonderful direction, cinematography, editing, and the outstanding cast that makes every scene hilairious or heartfelt. Often both.
Very funny. Sweet. And an incredible accomplishment considering it cost under $40k. Can't miss.
