PREMIERE - CRUTCH at the NYC QUAD THEATER
      #111087 - 08/31/04 06:51 PM

Friday, September 17, 2004 at the QUAD in NY City the PREMIERE of CRUTCH

"Crutch", a HP Productions film, will be distributed by Illuminare Entertainment as a speciality or art house film. The film will have its premiere this November at the NY Quad Cinema in Greenwich Village. A poignant and compelling story of self-discovery, the acquisition represents the Illuminare's first venture into this select market.
Motivated by his own adolescent battles with his family, particularly his alcoholic mother, writer/director Rob Moretti delivers a coming-of-age story that deals with addiction and a drastic turn of fate. When the father leaves the family, the son is obligated to care for his alcoholic mother and unable to cope, he develops a forbidden relationship that leads to drugs and alcohol. "Crutch" is a captivating and brutally honest look into love, loss, lies and our own dark secrets.
The film stars Eben Gordon, Rob Moretti, and Juanita Walsh as the alcoholic mother. Michael Philip Anthony, Eric Smith and Rob Moretti are the producers.

REVIEW: Just out today. Amazing. This is an excellent and intimate portrayal of coming of age. Remarkable camerawork and a brilliant original orchestra score add to the phenomenal true story. It made me look at the website for more information about the director.
A must-see, especially for those who have struggled with addiction in their lives or the lives of their loved ones.

this was the most horribly dry gay film I have ever seen.

There was nothing intimate about this film whatsoever. I had a very tough time believing this story and could not empathize with any of the characters. The dominant, if not only emotion in this movie was anger. This couldn't have been a true story. It seemed over-thought.

I would've loved to see less downward spiraling and more of how the main character became enlightened. I really hate to put down someone else's work but this film is seriously lacking in too many was to mention.
