Just finished watching "Anderson's Cross" released by Illumination Pictures. Jerome E. Scott wrote and direct a simply marvelously direct and unflinching movie that examines the life, desires, and choices Nick Anderson (Jerome E. Scott) has to make as he, along with his best friends Kevin and Tracey as they stand on the traditional cusp of adulthood - senior year of high school. Spoiler Alert - prudes shouldn't watch this movie because the sex and sexuality is pretty fluid. Anderson's Cross is an honest movie because it deals with the consequences of choices unflinchingly in an open manner, and that's what makes it enduring and worth watching again and again. Perhaps the best line in the movie is when Kevin and Tracey admit not only their love for each other, but their love and desire to sleep with Nick and their jealously of his newfound intimate realtionship with Trevor. At the heart of Anderson's Cross is people moving forward and onward with their lives, even when death strikes, and it does here in a rather dramatic, unexpected, yet totatly realistic way. Nick's tribute to his father at the end is inspiring and hopeful. I belive at one point Anderson's Cross was going to have a prequel television series, but sadly, I think those plans were never realized. Highly Recommended! Five Stars!
