Worth Seeing...
7 June 2019 | by cdcinkwellSee all my reviews

Whenever you laugh and cry during the same film you know it's a good one. It was like being on a roller coaster of emotions provided by the excellent writing from Theo Davies. He has a knack for drawling in the audience's attention and keeping it there throughout the entire film. The acting was fantastic especially by the main actors; Chris Day (Young Frank), Christian Ganiere (Michael), Andrew Steel and Kirby Bliss Blanton. You really felt the Andrew and Kirby had a real connection just like I'm sure Frank Shankwitz and Kitty Carlisle have. The supporting cast was led by CHIPs Alumni Robert Pine and Larry Wilcox. Talk about pros? They made it look easy. Steven Michael Quezada (Breaking Bad) also did a great job being young Frank's mentor, Juan Delgadillo.
