Customer Review

on 27 December 2012
This is one of those quietly marvelous independent films all of whose elements are exquisitely wrought -- from the unaffected and totally real writing, to the way that writing is delivered by a talented and diverse cast whose characters you wish were your own friends. I can't say enough about Benedict Cumberbatch, whose character is the magnetic center of a heart-wrenching and yet poignantly triumphant story about a young man's impending death and the effect it has on his friends. It's not so much a tear-jerker as it is a thoughtful, sometimes funny, sometimes dark and painful, but always riveting study of life itself. And ultimately one of peace and coming to terms with one's own mortality. I did, though, feel that the direction was a little over-wrought in a couple places but nothing to detract from the honesty and appeal of the characters and the story they were telling. It's a little gem and I look forward to more from writer Vaughn Sivell.
