POSTED 6/6/2021 – Storm Warnings presents a beautifully crafted, tension filled, familiar drama with brilliantly subtle performances. Both performances are filled with rich backstory – little bits revealed to the audience, while much is left to imagination. You will find yourself both sympathizing with and resenting both of these characters, a true hallmark of engaging performance. There is a deep tension underpinning the story, woven into the script and performances in a way that feels familiar. Well done to the entire team for this engaging little piece!

POSTED 6/10/2021 – A very hot day on a beach in Naples, Florida is a fitting locale for an uncomfortable encounter between a son and his estranged mother in MOSTLY SUNNY WITH HIGHS IN THE 90s. The son accepts an invitation from his mother, who he hasn’t seen in over 10 years, to come to visit and possibly re-connect. The story, written by Paul Dervis, has a well-balanced amount of awkwardness, humor and poignancy and the actors (actual mother and son) are very good. My first reaction after viewing was that this would have been more successful in a longer format where we are able to get to the know the characters and their individual situations better. That being said, the film still plays well and I was surprised how the very hot day concluded!
