The relationship forged between Sam and Stanley is nothing less than a Dickensian tapestry portraying powerful characters similar to Pip and Magwitch with all of the emotional and reformative currency of today's most pressing issues. I have not found myself more involved in the lives and journeys of two people in a mere 20 minutes than I did while engrossed in this powerful little film. Although there is an incredible depth of sadness in it, it reaches out and plays a hopeful chord in the heart at the end. I am not certain why...youth perhaps...possibilities for Sam. It's a lovely film with a very important and timely message, one worth listening to with an open mind and heart ~Noelle Renee
