RAVING REVIEW: A profound and captivating study of what it means to be thankful, TWOTWO is a film that tries to be a think piece. The film follows the journey of a socially awkward protagonist, played to perfection by Joel Ballard, who finds himself at the crossroads of his life. After a series of setbacks and misfortunes, he encounters a homeless man who offers him a chance to change his fate.
The encounter sets in motion a series of events that lead to a chance meeting with the enigmatic Morgan Makana. Her powerful on-screen presence and captivating performance keep the audience engaged and invested in the story. The dynamic between Ballard and Makana evolves throughout the film, culminating in a wild ride filled with twists, turns, and surprises that will leave the audience in suspense until the end.
Neither of the film's leads has a deep filmography, which, in part, makes their performances seem so real. They both have flaws that make them seem like they could be someone you know. Even in the most profound moments of the film, you can connect to their stories somehow.
The film's director, Jun Hoskulds, is a multi-talented artist with a diverse background in theatre, performing arts, and film. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for storytelling, Hoskulds creates a world of enchantment that invites the audience to explore the limits of reality, manifestation, and the power of the human mind.
If you are looking for a film experience that will make you think, look no further than TWOTWO. The film has some gorgeous cinematography and storytelling that will ultimately put a smile on your face, combining thought-provoking themes with entertaining moments that keep the audience engaged from start to finish. A unique and unforgettable piece of cinema, it is a must-see for anyone who appreciates screenwriting that challenges you.
