Movie Reviews

Decent performances, boring and tedious story
Steve Kuehl | Ben Lomond, CA | 02/22/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"As stated on the cover, the story of five women who are at a party where their choices shape their future and define who they are, blah, blah, blah...

I say that as the film took these characters' lives and tried to squeeze in their backgrounds, drama and pointless drivel into a 97 minute bookend. Technically, the film does fine on quality and production, with adequate performances by all, but it really does just drag on and on and on without there being enough interest generated on what anyone is doing.

What has to make me laugh the most is the title, and once again as stated on the cover art: "...Through broken windows we see glimpses desires and unfulfilled destinies..." huh? What about regular windows and how does one know if your destiny is ever "fulfilled"? But I gave it a chance anyway. The filming locations of SoCal were fine and the whole premise of an annual dinner party for all of the quasi-unrelated characters to come together works for a bit, but everyone implodes on trying to force the stories through in short order.

A commentary and behind the scenes supplement the DVD. Vanguard has distributed some duds the last two years and customers have become wary of their line, (having more people put the titles back on the shelf once they see who is behind the movie) but I would rate this over the last ten or so films of theirs that have bombed. I don't expect to see this review as being popular since the movie has a rabid following...hope you might enjoy."
Broken Windows Movie Review

"I highly recommend checking out this film. Intriguing premise and great performances. It's not your popcorn blockbuster film, but it has that "real" feel to it.

The film follows four different storylines that all come together at a dinner party to honor a deceased grandfather. It's a great ensemble cast where the performances are very strong from top to bottom. Larisa Oleynik is a standout and it's great to see her transition into a more mature role. I wasn't really familiar with Corri English before this film, but I'm going to go and see everything I can with her now - I loved her in this. Jonathan Murphy, Jason George and Devon Gummersall shine in their supporting roles.

You can tell the filmmakers took a lot of time and care with the music. I'm a big fan of Joshua Radin and his song was a beautiful choice to end the film with. In a sea of big budget films, I'm glad there are still character driven indie's being made."
