Subject: Amazing movie, great direction, wonderful performances

I was not expecting to be blown away by the wonderful acting, great story line, beautiful sound track and amazaing characters. YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE. I met the director and he is very humble and doesn't realize how talented he is and what an incredible job he has done for a man who has only made 3 films.
