Once in a great while, we need to break away from the glitz and glam of Hollywood and the rousing special effects of the Summer Blockbuster to take in life and enjoy an original story with a heart. "Andover" stars Jonathan Silverman, who plays Adam Slope, a genetics professor at a local college, who is dealing with the loss of his wife. Using the help of one of his most esteemed students, Slope uses the DNA in his departed wife's hair to essentially clone the wife he once had, discovering that the results are not always as expected. There are twists and surprises along the way, but Silverman, along with his ultra-talented supporting cast (Featuring Richard Kind, Steven Bauer, Scout Taylor-Compton, Jennifer Finnegan, Angela Kinsey, and Beth Grant) are all equal to the task in telling the heartwarming story, with an ending well worth the price of admission. The direction and writing of Scott Perlman, an alumnus from my alma mater, Barrington High School, is both smart and poignant, and should keep any viewer engaged throughout the production. You don't need a big budget to create a quality film, you just need passion and an effective cast competent of telling your story. 10/10.
