Sometimes the past doesn't always stay in the past. "The Actor" is a new Short film directed by Skip Shea and Mike Messier. Life is about choices we make, good or bad and the aftermath of those actions and decisions. This is the true story of David Graziano who one day met Christine Perla trough a friend. It was love at first sight but David had other plans for himself so he made decisions caused him to lose the love of his life. "The Actor" is the story of how David was able to win back Christine. David tells his coach and us how his life has gone until now.

This is an engaging film we can all relate to in one way or another but it is made that much better by the incredible acting that is taking place here. David Graziano gives a performance only he can give, it is as powerful as it is touching, a magnificent job that is sure to open a lot of eyes. Diana Porter is also amazing as his coach and one that refuses to let him feel sorry for himself. And then there is Christine Perla as his muse, Christine is not on screen all that much but she certainly lights it up every time she is with her beauty. Production wise the film looks terrific, shot in black and white everything about the film looks and sounds amazing but considering the two Directors it was expected.

"The Actor" is a film that sucks you in right from the start, David's story of love is one that melts the heart. This is a touching, captivating story that will have you thinking about your own life and the mistakes and missed opportunities you have had. It is not often you get to see a film that affects you the way this film does. I hope everyone gets the chance to see this cinematic gem soon.
