An exhilarating and humorous study of youthful anomie, SKILLS LIKE THIS revolves around a group of close-knit friends whose shiftless lives go topsy-turvy when wild-haired Max (Spencer Berger) drops his failed writing career and takes up something he believes he s really good at: stealing. His first bank heist plunges him into an unlikely but thrilling romance with sexy bank teller Lucy (Kerry Knuppe), who, after handing over a bag stuffed with cash, finds herself torn between Max and the law. Faced with their friend s new career path, the doltish but impossibly upbeat Tommy (Brian D. Phelan) is primed for adventure, while straitlaced Dave (Gabriel Tigerman), ever the adult, worries about the consequences. As Max steps up his crime spree, the friends have to make hard if not hilariously awkward choices about the direction of their lives. Artfully directed by Monty Miranda, SKILLS LIKE THIS shows considerable intelligence and chemistry (Variety) and bristles with rock n roll energy underscored by the sounds of Denver s music scene. A comedy for anyone who s ever wanted to find something they re really good at, SKILLS LIKE THIS is as smart as it is funny.
Shot entirely in Colorado, SKILLS LIKE THIS proved to be fan favorite amongst moviegoers.

I forced myself to watch it all just to see if it improved. It didn't.
I'm not going to write out the movie like a wannabe film critic as some reviewers tend to do. I personally love the title because it's a cheeky allusion to the movie's underlying message. I personally watched this movie with the same mindset as I would have if I were to read a fictional novel in the vein of Breakfast at Tiffany's or A Place at the Table. It's about a particular character and their life, and that's how I saw this movie. A story about a fictional character and this life event that occurred.
As far as indie films go, it was very well done and the cast were a damn sight better at acting than most in the genre. Give it a whirl.
