The Copper Wing award for Best Arizona Feature goes to RAISING BUCHANAN!
BRUCE DELLIS (Writer-Director) and AMANDA MELBY (Producer-Ruth) accept the Copper Wing for Best Arizona Feature for RAISING BUCHANAN.
by Ben Ragunton
"...Writer/director Dellis has managed to craft an enormously clever comedy, that had the risk of going of the rails and becoming madcap, but instead through the timely written dialogue between Ruth and Buchanan it oddly enough helps keep the movie grounded, which is also a testament to the quality of Dellis’ directing as well as the outstanding acting between Rene Auberjonois and Amanda Melby..."
Read the full review:
This is a very well scripted and well edited quirky little adorable comedy about three money struggling women, a ventriloquists mafia and one presidential corpse. The lead, Amanda Melby gave a very endearing performance. Bits of heartfelt drama never cross over into the sappy zone. And supporting performances by M. Emmet Walsh and Rene Auberjonois were quite outstanding.
This film has a great soul and I hope it makes some more noise in the coming months. I'd like to see it get legs.
