A Great Indie Film - Bravo
4 September 2012 | by accountcrapperSee all my reviews

A great indie film. People dealing with the difficulties of life and embracing change. The script rings true throughout. The acting is solid and heartfelt. There is not a single clanger in this film. Well edited, shot, cast, directed. A perfect indie film.

The story is simple, an ordinary fat man unhappy with his life, seeing his weight become a problem for those that love him puts himself into isolation to try and deal the problem head on.

It reminded me of The Station Agent with Peter Dinklage another indie film about body issues, separation from normal society and the search for connection. Both are fantastic films and both mean a lot to me. Films about change and redemption, about the daily grind that is this life. Highly recommended!
