Outstanding first feature
28 June 2005 | by gleedavisSee all my reviews

First-time director Maria Petros has crafted a taut, well-acted tale of teen angst and the private tragedies that ultimately lead to public violence.

As writer, producer and director, Petros has evidently marched through the hades that is Independent Film and survived, but moreover has proved that a small budget and limited resources need not stand in the way of a skilled director delivering an involving, satisfying movie experience.

In spite of the familiar subject matter, this is an original story with true suspense and believable performances by a large cast of both teens and adults. Worth watching, not only for its cautionary message, but for a chance to watch a sensitive young director like Petros transfer true emotion from script to screen.
