Movie Reviews

Independent filmmaking at it's best
D. Sanford | 10/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Daybreak captures your attention and keeps you guessing throughout what might happen next. The acting was good especially Paul Clemens. Throughout the film, Paul captures the scene and draws you into the character. His acting is powerful and memorable. Director Michael James Kacey's strong story-telling abilities is shown throughout the film. This is sure to become a cult classic!!!!"
Powerful debut from first-time director

"I saw this movie at a small screening and was impressed by both the performances and the realism. It deals with the fantasy question of "what if my life had taken a different turn at an earlier point?" and warns against the constant questioning of what "might have been" at the expense of enjoying and appreciating what we have. The lead character of Jeff is plunged into what is both a nightmare, and a very ordinary life. Paul Clemens does a fine job of portraying his character as a real person, faced with a situation which usually gets a less than "realistic" treatment in Hollywood! His scenes of anguish over what he lost are wrenching for just that realism. Debra Henri stands out in the scene where she stands up for her own dreams in the face of Jeff's apparent self-obsession, and Jeff Bergquist gives an ultimately touching performance as Jeff's father.

I commend Michael James Kacey (and his crew) for their fine achievement."
Local interest only

"The film is interesting if you are local to the coal region area of central Pennsylvania. The plot is weird, really never develops and the acting is abysmal as is the directing."
