Editorial Reviews

At the heart of this indie drama lies an old-fashioned musical about a boy who gets the break of a lifetime but may lose his gal in the process. Writing for an off-Broadway show, tunesmith Joe must decide whom to cast: his girlfriend or his new muse.

“Passionate, humorous…a crowd-pleaser…the latest film from New York director Gary King will win your heart…” – indieWIRE

“a delightful film….divine music, charming performances…a hidden treasure…” – TWITCH

I loved everything about this film. It really captures what thousands of aspiring actors and musicians feel when they try to make it in the Big Apple. Joe Schermann's music and lyrics are what really make the movie work - he is one talented guy. The music tells the story, and the plot is anything but predictable.

Gary King has had some success with his film career, but this one is by far his best. I saw it for the first time at a film festival in London and the audience loved it. The second time I saw it I like it even more - was able to focus on more of the lyrics and vocals. A low budget film with a lot of heart.

This was a very well thought out, well constructed Indie film w/ some very solid performances. From a technical aspect the film passes w/ flying colors, particularly the dance sequences were well choreographed, and it's not easy on a limited budget. The camera work and sound were quite well done as well. The script and narrative was well constructed and allowed breathing room for some quite good performances, especially from Christina Rose, and the other female lead. The other supporting actors, like Marc DiConzo, brought some real heft to the film as well.

At times, the film had a bit of a smugly self satisfied tone that seemed to emanate from the filmmakers, "look Ma, what a great show we're putting on." But, things never got sappy or overly sentimental. Also, Joe Schermann himself did a solid job as the lead, but one can't help but wonder what a really gifted actor might have done with this role. There were opportunities to really explore much darker corners of the artistic psyche that were missed because Schermann himself may not have had the acting chops. But, he did do an amazing job w/ all the musical numbers, and it'd be completely ridiculous to expect him to be equally as talented in both mediums. It'd be like asking Roy Scheider to compose the music and choreograph "All That Jazz", or conversely have Bob Fosse himself play the lead. This is the only slight flaw that could've made the film even better!

Overall, if you're looking for a date night flick off the beaten path I highly, HIGHLY recommend this one! (Not sure what films these other tools were looking at but maybe they need to stick to their Transformers sequels:)
