Last night I attended the premier test screening of the locally produced full length film The Divorce. It stars many people who I have come to know over the past few years. Before I continue, we should pause for a moment to see the below trailer.
I went into it with the expectation of some of the other local films. It did start slow, but the story was funny, sad, suspenseful, and touching at the same time. Although this movie has aspects of other movies, what it does not have is shallow characters. Though the ingenious storytelling by Rob Parsons and the great acting there is not a character that this movie does not have you rooting for. The story also progresses nicely and leaves you not looking at your watch very much. (I only checked mine once, and it was at 8:46pm).
This movie, considering that I see about 100 movies in theatres per year, is right there alongside “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell” as my top 200 movies. 4.5/5 stars!
