Scott Albanese, the films director, has done a good job and the feeling from King’s story is there. It’s a little short though (15 minutes) and could easily have been about 5-10 minutes longer without loosing its feel. It would have given it more depth…I think.
Still it’s a good movie and it’s a good performance from Kent Vaughan as Alfie. I’m not sure it it’s he who is the narrator as well but the voice that does the narrating (I think it’s Kent) is very good. It fits the mood of the movie very well.
The problem with these Dollar Babies is that they are pretty hard to come by. If you get to see them it’s probably in small format online or at a film festival. Still, they are often worth seeing even if in small format and this one certainly is no different.
