Good Material, Good OnScreen Talent....Not Well Produced.
This film had potential, lots in fact. Unfortunately, it doesn't live up to it largely due to some poor post production work. The amateurish editing resulted in scene selections in which the onscreen talent were unconvincing in their characters and the sound filled with problems. In other words, in some scenes the actors lose contact with the character they're playing and you see them, not the character. In other scenes, the camera work is choppy and the sound so muddled as the dialog to be unintelligible. The play is excellent, the direction of the talent not so much. All-in-all there are hundreds of movies made each year with far worse results than this one in some way or another. The difference is in most cases, they have neither the talent resources or budget to overcome their issues. No excuse here. Is it a bad movie? No. Is it worth the price of a ticket? Yes. Will you leave feeling as if you've been entertained? Depends on your threshold for video satisfaction.
