Proud moment for me: My movie comes out in theaters today. I spent every day since I was 12 waiting for today. Thank you Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas for taking a chance on me.

  1. Oh my gosh! Is this a feature based on the short film? About the cop talking at his mom’s funeral? My friends showed it to me after they saw it at the Cleveland International Film Festival. The short film struck a very particular chord in me, especially when he (you?!) talked about how his mom made recordings of her reading the textbooks for him to listen to because he had dyslexia—not that I have dyslexia, it was just such a raw feeling of mourning and loss and bittersweetness. It made me feel the same way as when, idk, Max comes home at the end of Where the Wild Things Are and his dinner is still warm after fighting with his mom. You know that feeling? Anyway thank you

  2. I coincidentally discovered this movie an hour before I saw this post while going over the top reviewed movies of 2018. Each year I average out the Rottentomatoes critic scores and the IMDB audience scores to create an ordered list.

    The numbers fluctuate as the year goes on, but excluding foreign and documentaries, the current list is topped by:

    * Eighth Grade
    * A Star is Born
    * Paddington 2
    * The Tale
    * Mission Impossible: Fallout
    * BlacKkKlansman
    * Thunder Road

    ….Everything Else

  3. Congratulations! Trailer looks amazing. I wish you tons of future success.

    Question, if you have a sec. What do you mean about it being your dream since you were 12? Did you already have a rough draft of this story in your head, or is it more a general ‘I’m going to make a movie someday’?
