| Beautiful, emotional film
I saw it at the Woodstock Film Festival premiere tonight and was not disappointed. I, too, was an extra in the film (since I worked at one of the locations it was filmed) so I'm a bit biased, of course, but I thought it was so well done. I loved it. The cast, the shots of the Hudson Valley, and the story were compelling, beautiful, and heartwrenching. Thank you to all involved - I'll always have fond memories of you shooting the film at my workplace and then finally having a chance to see it two years later. Congratulations!
