Cherry (2012) (DVD Review)

Cherry (2012)
Director:  Quinn Saunders
Where to get it: MVD

When Brian Cherry, a sweet, sensitive young Los Angelino, falls for the beautiful, electric, and damaged Jules, she turns his ideas about women and sex upside-down. Slowly, he is drawn into a twisted love-triangle that includes Jules and his best friend, Sam. When Jules eventually leaves him for Sam, Cherry decides on a shocking course of action that will destroy the lives of all three.

Cherry is a movie that deals with a lot of complicated adult situations and emotions. We have a story of two friends that are two very different people. One helps out his too kind for his own good friend with a girl and things seem fine but soon things get complicated in a love triangle and it goes downhill from that point. The movie actually shocks you in some areas it goes in, but it makes for a very cool and brooding film that knows how to build up tension.

We primarily have three characters here and all three of the actors bring their A-games for this one. I can honestly say we have a well written and awkwardly realistic take on a few different types of people. Some of which you might know and even worse some of which you might be similar to yourself. I find that Cherry hits all the marks that an independent film should hope to meet in its execution. I think the end result is a film highly worth checking out.
