Rave Review

 “The writers did a great job of creating a strong leading female character that could certainly garner interest from great actresses. Margaret Goodman is a role that could become a solid vehicle for an actress in her mid-40s, an age range where there is always a need for strong roles The story itself is well-contained and could be successfully executed within a modest budget level range, making it appealing for potential financiers. With a well-built mystery and crime investigation, the film has the potential to have a good performance at the box office, attracting both male and female audiences, thanks to the presence of a strong female protagonist. It’s ultimately a family drama wrapped around a crime mystery.” Children struggle with not seeing eye to eye with their parents. Romances blossom. Deception and betrayal lead to the deteriorating of marriages.” – The Black List.
