Drama/Thriller NR. Roman (Lucky McKee) is a lonely young man who yearns to find love, happiness and companionship. Tormented by his ungrateful co-workers and trapped in a life of tedium as a welder in a local factory, Roman's one pleasure is his obsession with the elusive beauty (Kristen Bell) who lives in the apartment in his building complex. When a chance encounter with the young woman goes horribly wrong, a moment of frenzied desperation triggers a chilling turn of events leading to murder. As he teeters between deranged fantasy and cold reality, Roman's struggle to hide his grisly secret is further complicated by an eccentric neighbor (Nectar Rose) who develops an unlikely attraction to Roman and forces herself into his dark and tortured world. This is a follow-up to Lucky McKee's 2002 hit movie, May starring Angela Bettis but instead this time Angela goes behind the camera while Lucky stars as the shy yet disturbed man. You can tell right from the start this is a much lower film in budget and lacks some of the direction as well as being a very slow-paced film at least during the first half. I suspect many of you out there will get bored of this movie soon after hitting the play button but I suggest you give this a chance as in the end it proves to be a worthy thriller that when it's all said and done any fan of the genre will enjoy. The acting is not the best, Lucky himself seemed a little wooden to be but still managed to portray his character well enough to make him believable. This is a film for movie-lovers and not for those that look for mainstream only as this is far from that. I do not think this is as good as May but also I do not think it's fair to compare to two movies. Roman is a clever thriller and stands own it's own pretty well. Released by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment. *** 1/2 Out Of *****
