Sundance 2012 Review… well, more like an extremely biased promo, for Filly Brown.

Filly Brown

Look, I’ll be honest.  I can’t write an unbiased review for Filly Brown because it was directed by a good friend of mine, Mike Olmos.  But I will say this.  Much like Hustle and Flow, or 8 Mile, this musical film about the journey, struggles, and hardships of a struggling artist trying to follow her dreams while keeping her family intact, is an ultimate crowd pleaser.  The packed house at Eccles we saw it with gave the film, as well as the INSANELY talented lead, Gina Rodriguez, a standing ovation at the end.  Mark my words, she’s going to be huge.  And she deserves it.  She’s incredible.

If you want to see a solid, entertaining, and pure crowd pleasing flick, definitely make sure you check out Filly Brown.

And support my boy Mike.  He’s one of the good guys.  And a damn good director.
