CGiii Comment

Wow...a seriously creepy [and dangerous] kid with everything it takes to become a fully-fledged psychopath!!!

The production values are sky-high, the performances are perfectly played...but, it's the writing that really soars. There's humour and a moment that will make your jaw hit the floor!

Brilliant as it is...that is, if 'disturbing' is your cup of tea!

We loved it!


There was a trailer...but, it has since disappeared.

The(ir) Blurb...

With no siblings or friends to speak of, nine year old Alex Van Winkle spends all his time in his room, play acting that he’s on a glamorous New York City date (or any other romantic scenario he’s seen on TV). His life is boring until one day he meets Jared Duke, the foggy eyed (but handsome) twenty-five year old friend of the family that his chronically inebriated mother has hired to do work around the house. Jared’s presence lights a spark in Alex as we soon see him dressing up in fancy outfits, Facebook stalking, writing heartfelt letters, and generally bending over backwards to try to get the attention of moody Jared.
