The Unconventional Gourmet: Movie Review

A short film that’s not short on creativity.  It’s edited beautifully drawing the viewer in, with captivating cinematography and content.

The script captures the essence of a moment in time, with a twist.  By the films end you’ll have others wondering why you’re so eagerly saying, “welcome to the family“, with a peculiar grin.

Two thumbs up to Wendy Keeling who wrote, directed, and stars, in The Unconventional Gourmet.
