I saw The Unseen at a NYC screeening Friday night and loved it. This film had a wonderful story, directing, acting, writing, editing etc. I was completely drawn in by the story and characters and I felt as if I was living alongside these characters in this small Georgia town. There was also some great humor in the film as well! Gale Harold was brilliant- he is one of the most nuanced actors I have ever seen and he blew me away in this role- I felt both afraid of him and compassion for him at the same time. The film is heartbreaking and hopeful and really beautiful. I hope so much that a distribution deal comes through because I will certainly buy it. There are so many parallels to catch in the film. I give it a 10. Amazing. --New York Times movie critic
