Terrific example of Indie Filmmaking
2 January 2016 | by shop-18259See all my reviews

"A Better You" is a sweet and funny story about a well-meaning self-help guru that's probably not as bright as he should be. It has a panoply of somewhat quirky but recognizable characters both well-acted and well-written with just the right amount of conflict and dissonance to carry the story along. Walsh and Huskey succeed without stereotyping which isn't always an easy thing to do in filmmaking and along with the main characters, we move through their relationships as they attempt to navigate what could be described for most of us as "regular life." There are more than a few sincere and realistic moments in this film, all of which are deftly handled by Walsh and crew and never feel contrived. "A Better You" is a terrific example of indie filmmaking; highly-recommended.
