What does one write about when one has nothing Real Estate related to write about, and I'm about "Evented" out until next month. I do have one more big event next month but I'm not ready to put yet another event on Localism. I do have another "Keeping Children Safe"blog started but that does have to wait for reasons you will understand when it is posted. So, thought I would tell you about my nice quiet rainy cold Saturday. I sat snuggled in my recliner and watched a wonderful new movie I recently received.
Some of you know I spent some time with Mickey Jones during Speed Week and got to know him pretty well. Mickey recently finished filming a independent film in North Carolina with a company called Back 40 Films and producers David and Olson Huff a father and son team. The movie is called Simple Things. The cast also includes Cameron Bancroft, BellamyYoung, Aidan Mitchell & Amber Benson. If you want to view the trailer click here Simplethingsthemovie.com.
Simple Things has won The Spirit Award, The Audience Award and Best Child Actor Award In A Supporting Role at the at the International Family Film Festival and is a Finalist for Best Feature.
I'm not going to ruin it for you, but the premise of the film is big city doctor and his young son go to a small town in North Carolina to help get a medical clinic off the ground. The story was written by Dr. Olson Huff and the script and acting are awesome. It appeared to me by the way the movie was edited that this film may come to the small screen. My only gripe was some of the scenes were too short, they could have added a bit more to at least 2 very important scenes to make them more powerful as the movie is only 99 minutes long. It could have been a budget issue, I don't know. But all in all, it is a good movie. Mickey's part is a riot by the way, he plays Slider the handy man.
If after viewing the trailer you decide you don't wait to wait for the movie to come to your local movie rental store or out on the small screen, you can purchase it for a whopping $10.00 at Musk Entertainment (I paid $13.05 with tax and shipping). I am going to order 3 more for family members and have Mickey sign them when he is in town next month.
This film is well worth the $10.00, it makes one realize that SIMPLE THINGS are what matter most in this life.
