      Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A self-assured calling card. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 1, 2022 Full Review Federico Furzan Movie-Blogger.com A good enough thriller that's also beautifully shot and understood by a promising director. Rated: 3.8/5 Mar 13, 2022 Full Review Michael Szymanski Mike Szymanski (Medium) Theres enough edge-of-your-seat tension for the adults, as well as relatable characters for young adults and children, and a lack of unnecessary over-the-top violence or swearing that may upset the grandparents. Its a movie for everyone. Rated: 8/10 Mar 10, 2022 Full Review Jason Delgado Film Threat Some actors leave much to be desired while the writing is far too unbelievable and ridiculous.

      austin b A small town miracle from director Leslie Goyette, working with what had to have been a dauntingly low budget in this her first feature film, ambitiously set in 1920's Appalachia. Some will maybe take issue with the film's pacing and length, but I wonder if I'd found myself as emotionally invested with less. In fact, try as I might - I'm a hard nut to crack - I found it impossible to resist the heartfelt performances from its mostly young cast, convincingly embedded in an almost obsessive attention to period detail. The assemblage of vintage vehicles is a sight to behold. But more importantly, as astonishing and at times shocking as the story is, it is all held together with a rare sense of honesty, never loosing sight of its underlying message of love and redemption. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Rick I Is your world always this sad? Many movies follow a similar structure of a main character leaving a happy, comfortable life behind for suffering and trials in hopes of achieving their goals. But what happens when the life being lived is already the hell most people never have to endure? Marysville front loads its story with heartbreak, I'm talking real, kick in your gut sadness, and begs you to have hope that a cycle of anger, abuse, and hate can be broken in one generation. Deciding to produce an independent film is a big undertaking in its own right. But deciding to commit to a period piece is really something brave. It's done to great effect here. Somehow the filmmakers have found accurate locations, vehicles, and wardrobe for the time. The cinematography is solid. The score sounds like a full orchestra and it's as sweeping and engaging as any theatrical release. I have to recommend Maysville. It has great cast, production design, script, and don't forget an inspiring message we could all learn from. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Josh S Wow! It is rare that you come across a period film, on the indie scale, that is SO well done. The acting was absolutely brilliant. I couldn't believe how great the young actors in particular were. But the story is so well done. The drama is there but there is also a great sense of tension throughout. The opening of the film really sets everything in motion nicely (while it is certainly disturbing!) and I thought the follow through was very well done. The cinematography was very well done. I felt the lighting fit the time period and felt very organic. I also thought the sound and music was well done also! Overall this is a very good experience and I would highly recommend. Bravo to the filmmakers! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/27/22 Full Review Audience Member Maysville - Heartwarming period piece set against the backdrop of Appalachia. Beautiful cinematography and a family story make this a great choice for all ages. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member What a terrific indie film! This is a good example why so many people enjoy watching indie films. It had a wonderful story, solid acting and moved along at a good pace. Bravo to all who helped to make this gem of a film! Well done folks! A big thumb's up from me on this one!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review catherane s Immersed in a sumptuous visual feast of a bygone time gave the film a strong foundation. Kudos to the art director, set designer, locations, wardrobe. Extremely well done and an indie film no less. Shout out to the two leads, Cheyenne Barton and Kevin R James.
