Saw this film recently at the Athens International Film Festival. Highly recommend. Top production quality, humorous, scenery is eye-candy, great selection of actor talent, and a fantastic first film by a couple of promising independent filmmakers. Proves once again it does not take a fortune to bring a good story, talented acting, good production of visual and sound, and great direction

Oddly enough, the film's best pro-tech argument is its look; shot on a consumer-grade digital camera, it's a testament to how elegantly framed low-budget projects can look these days. Full Review

Gentler and less aesthetically assaultive than offerings like 0s & 1s and Catfish, but it's not necessarily any subtler or more enlightening. Full Review

The film would be better if it were gentler. It's broadly written and played, the actors too busy telegraphing their characters' emotions to let us contemplate their faces in peace. Full Review
Ian Buckwalter
As obvious and expected as this turn of events is, the filmmakers and Hollyman create such an endearing character in Sarah that one still wants to see her get there. Full Review

The New York Times
The best thing about Small, Beautifully Moving Parts is its admission that a positive pregnancy test is not always cause for giddy celebration; the worst thing is that, even at a lean 73 minutes, this flimsy road movie feels at least 43 minutes too long. Full Review
