Great movie directed by Michael Cuesta

“12 and holding” is another great movie directed by Michael Cuesta, who recently became my favorite movie director.

Description: The raw and fragile lives of three preteens unravel in 12 and Holding, a rich and compelling independent film. When an outgoing boy named Rudy is accidentally killed by two other boys, Rudy's twin brother Jacob (Conor Donovan) starts visiting the killers in prison to try to make sense of his life and of his parent's diverse reactions; his mother (Jayne Atkinson, 24) craves revenge while his father (Linus Roache, Priest) tries to move forward.

““12 and holding” is another great movie directed by Michael Cuesta, who recently became my favorite movie director. If you are looking for a fine Coming out of Age story – chances are that that you will find it all in “12 and holding”. It is a simple story – without much special effects or famous actors playing – but the way the story is shown will make you remember what you’ve seen .One could say that the movie was disturbing – as it showed things most people would never want to happen to them or their kids – at the same time everything seems to real. One just couldn’t miss the exceptional performance of the young Conor Donovan who plays two roles – and does it so well, that I have to admit that I haven’t noticed that both boys are played by the same actor.
