Movie Reviews

A Real Film For People Who Love Real Films
Michael Mulcahy | 04/06/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With no dependence on Mad Hatters or Blue Aliens jumping out at you, Easier With Practice commits to a rare element seldom seen in Cinema of late, story and humility. Easier With Practice is a film for people who love real movies made by people who love real movies and it shows. The tight-knit fascinating characters slowly unravel in such a pace that we feel their evolution at the same pace they do. Director, Kyle Patrick Alvarez and the talented cast are able to give the characters a rare humility seldom seen any more, whether in mainstream or independent film.

Other reviewers have already adequately explained the story so I will not. I will only say that with a brilliant young cast; an original, warming, and often-funny story; and a hip soundtrack Easier With Practice is touching, entertaining, contemporary and simply well done. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you might even pick up the phone and call that special someone."
A Rare Unique Film
B. Wenrich | Albuquerque, NM USA | 02/09/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's a rare thing indeed for a truly unique story to get the funding to be made into a movie. Sure you can get your recycled ideas in 3D filled with big name celebrities retreading the same water that has been run through a million times before, but what's the point? There's a reason Easier With Practice exists and that is to show the world and movie going public that there is still some humanity left out there. It's not on some distant planet, but here, on the other end of a telephone.

See what independent film fans and festival goers are already discovering. A movie with a true heart, a unique story, and is made by people that LOVE cinema, Easier With Practice."

""Easier with Practice"

Stirring and Poignant

Amos Lassen

Kyle Patrick Alvarez gives us his first feature film, "Easier with Practice", a poignant and stirring look at phone sex and the nature of relationships.
A chance dirty phone call between an introverted writer and a mystery woman with a persuasive voice turns into a long distance relationship that is truly touching. Davy (Brian Geraghty) is a withdrawn author who is on a road trip to publicize his upcoming novel which is yet unpublished. His brother, Sean (Kel O'Neill) has come along for the ride (and like he says--to get laid). One night Davy receives a phone call through which he "meets" Nicole. At first he is highly distrustful but he gradually opens up and a strange emotional bond is created between the two but threatens to separate the brothers. What we get is a provocative love story about a man who suffers from being emotionally stunted.
Davy really wants to meet Nicole but Nicole declines all invitations. Geraghty gives a bravura performance which totally reflects his profound isolation. He is self-deluded and this can become a turn off to some viewers. It is Davy's shame, vulnerability, social awkwardness and lack of sexual confidence that give him his being.
This is quite simply a wonderful little film with an ending that you will not soon forget and we learn about love, sex and loneliness and when and how they come together.
