Cast of young performers are 'Diamonds In The Rough' with genuine potential for Oscar-caliber performances
13 August 2002 | by IrenePax60See all my reviews

Nolan North leads a cast of young performers, all of whom display genuine depth and maturity in a script dealing with real and serious issues, of interest to many thoughtful world citizens. North and the rest of the cast are 'Diamonds In The Rough,' who have amazing potential to reach true greatness in their profession. While many of them would not be considered 'great actors', I see most of them - especially North - as highly credible and consistently bankable performers along the lines of Fred MacMurray, James Garner and Dean Jones. It is a delight to see performers who do not have the stuffy pretentiousness of actors who are TRYING to be 'great actors,' but who are consistently credible in displaying genuine emotions. This movie was obviously a 'Labor of Love' for the entire cast and crew and I look forward to seeing the efforts of this talented group in many more movies and television programs. Sincerely, Heather, Sandre de Cristo, CO, USA
