A Movie Based on a Screen Writer's Class Exercise?
This Slice of Life film seems to have been pieced together from the submissions of a 28-student class of fledgling Screen Writers. Each scene has the same framework, which identifies the requirements of the screen writing teacher. From that point on, each Student is given the freedom to flesh out their scene as they see fit in order to make each of them unique in some fashion. The Casting Director was lucky to cast a pair of actors who have the skill and experience necessary to fulfill each of the student screen writer's dialog and directions. However, the way the scenes are pieced together make the 82 Minute length seem like the film is dragging in some scenes.
