Audience Reviews:

  • “The cinematography was beautiful, and the film was shot mostly with DSLR cameras. Lensbaby and tilt-shift lenses were used for special effects. It was gorgeous.” Pro Photo Supply
  • “Told with grace and beauty. First rate cinematography coaxes hope out from seeming tragedy. A fine indie film worth seeing with someone you love.” IMDB Review
  • “This movie captivates the audience right till the end, the cinematography rivals that of a National Geographic film and the characters are so engaging you leave the movie with them still on your mind. This is truly not only the best film I have seen come out of Portland but this is a movie I would go back to see again and again.” IMDB Review
