Dir: Mark Wihak
Cast: Maya Batten-Young, Adam Budd

Seen & Reason to see: During the Canadian Film Fest 08

This is a touching and heartfelt film about friendship, in every sense of the word. Impressive debut performances by both of the leads, Maya Batten-Young and Adam Budd whom with the director Mark Wihak developed with story for 2 months before improvising all of the dialogue. I loved how every moment felt real, whether it was a moment of joy, sadness, awkwardness or play. And play they did! Isn't that what friends are for? Someone to play, share experiences with and talk to. This is a beautiful film to experience.
