Editorial Reviews

A struggling young artist Marcus, (Wallace Demarria) meets a talented, and undiscovered songstress, Madison ( MTV's Layla Kayleigh) in a diner in Atlanta one summer and the two of them forge a romance. Both make a deal to help the other up the ladder of success, but when Madison gets her lucky break, both must face hard truths and contend with sacrifice that neither of them bargained for. Through their faith and with some hard lessons learned each finds a love that teaches them what success is really all about and how to be happy with who you are.

Since there is not yet a synopsis of this movie, here is briefly what it is about--I edited and truncated a blurb I found on [...]

--Marcus Savage, played by Wallace Demarria is a struggling, brilliant artist (painter) whose work portrays his belief that nothing happens by accident. He meets Madison Lane, played by Layla Kayleigh who is a beautiful and talented but yet undiscovered songstress. Desperately seeking success, they both must face hard truths and contend with sacrifice on their individual paths to fame. Through their journey one of them makes an extremely difficult decision based on pure love that transforms their lives in ways neither imagined.--

The story of this movie was very good and with better actors it could have been great; that is the only reason I gave it three stars.

I felt embarrassed for Wallace Demarria who played the lead male role of Marcus; he was one of the very few decent actors in this movie and I honestly don't know how he got through some of those scenes. The actor who played his best friend was pretty good also. I've seen many low budget films that were very well acted, so that cannot be used as an excuse for this movie.

I also have to comment on the accent/speech of the lead female role, Madison, played by Layla Kayleigh. She was supposed to be from London, and the actress actually was born in London, with a father of African and European descent and a mother of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean descent. So considering that, it doesn't make sense that she seemed to struggle throughout the movie with her speech in general; it sounded almost as if she had a speech impediment. She had many different accents in different parts of the film ranging from British to what sounded to me like a New York(Queens) accent.

Three dreams, all within reach, but someone has to be willing to put theirs on hold for the others to live. Would you be able to stall your dream for the attainment of the dream of someone you love? Would I? I like to think I would.
A Simple Promise really surprised me. I'd heard it was kind of a chick flick but I wanted to see it anyway because my friend is in it. I don't often get to say that about a movie. Based on this one, I hope to be able to say it more often.

The good: an attractive lead and a storyline that had potential. The bad: everything else!

If you want to see what a high school film class project looks like - this is the movie for you.

Members of the film crew weren't actually knocking over the scenery or stumbling into the shots during filming, but it would not have made the movie any worse if they had.

This is a movie that dramatize a real life sacrificial situation. I was impressed and surprised with the ending. It takes a great talent to finish a story-line without one of the main characters.

I liked the story but the movie itself was not very good quality.
