Film Review: A Sort of Homecoming



Starring:  Katherine McNamara, Laura Marano, Kathleen Wilhoite, Parker Mack and Michelle Clunie

Written by: Lynn Reed

Directed by: Maria Burton

A Sort of Homecoming is a new independent movie that tell the story of Amy, a New York news producer whose life take an unexpected detour when she is called back to the hometown she was doing her best to forget.  Amy is asked to return home when a former teacher’s illness renders her incapacitated and Amy is inexplicably named as her medical power of attorney.  Through a series of flashbacks we learn the story of Amy and her last few years in high school when she was competing on the school’s nationally-known debate team.  This is a story about relationships, forgiveness and the wisdom that we earn while we live life.  It is an engaging story that unfolds nicely and is told well, with no hidden meanings or undeveloped plot lines. The script is very good and the actors make it their own with no awkwardness or hesitation.

A Sort of Homecoming will be released May 10th and can be pre-ordered now through iTunes, Amazon video, Vimeo on demand, Vudu and Google play.
