Watched the movie on the 2nd day of TIFF 2014.
Before the movie, the director and several actors showed up and talked about the movie.
Dustin Huffman said,"it's a special movie, we hear that a lot. But you know films can be special and not work. And it can be special and work.... Hope you enjoy."
I did enjoy the movie. It flows very naturally and smoothly. I would not say this is a great movie, but it is still a good one.
Everyone tells Stet," you have the voice. you have the talent. Don't waste it".
I guess this is the point. Do not waster your talent. NEVER.
Even if it only stays for a short period, you gotta use your gift!
