Easier with Practice

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: A self-published author (Brian Geraghty) on a book tour/road trip gets an anonymous phone call from a woman looking for phone sex, and thus their relationship begins, despite the fact that they have never met.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Brian Geraghty, Kel O’Neill, Jeanette Brox, Jenna Gavigan, Katheryn Aselton

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketProceed with Caution. I will say this, there is something engrossing about the bizarre eroticism that forms the central relationship, which in some ways appears to be the most together relationship in the film.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Here and there. But not loudly.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: There are definitely some parts that will make you want to punch someone.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: It’s nominated for Best First Feature at the Independent Spirit Awards, but it has no chance of winning because it’s the only movie in its bunch that you’ve never heard of. And I’ve come to realize that the voters don’t usually see the movies, therefore popularity matters.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Brian Geraghty carries the movie, and he is disturbed in ways that you cannot relate to. You go right along with it anyway, thanks to his complex and convincing performance.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: Simple and indy.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: It’s subtle and understated in its story, but overt and overstated in its dialogue. The brother character is a cliché of a cheating, partying dude. And you wonder how he and the main lead could possibly be from the same family. Unless of course the lead has a mental dysfunction, which I certainly wouldn’t rule out.

Q: Where can I see the trailer?
