Raising Awareness about Mental Illness
No Letting Go is an amazing film based on a true story. It follows the struggles of a family dealing with a young son who is struggling with mental illness. It's a film that must be seen. Too often movies about mental illness do not represent the majority of people who have loved ones suffering from any type of mental disorder. "Hollywood" sensationalizes the storyline. No Letting Go gives a voice to the thousands of families who are struggling daily with a loved one with mental illness. The cast is outstanding, the directing and production value are far above what we sometimes associate with indie films. I saw a screening of the film in NYC and can honestly say there was not a dry eye in the theater. It's a dramatic, powerful story but it's also an uplifting one that will hopefully help stop the stigma that surrounds mental illness. Look for this film on TV, Cable VOD etc! You will NOT want to miss it!
