AUDIENCE LETTERS & REVIEWS

"People need to see this." - Cliff E., MD, US Army

"Absolutely fantastic film! I was quite shocked, in a positive way, by how human and real this film was. I served as a private contractor in both, Iraq and Afghanistan. Thanks for putting such genuine heart into your work! It will bring a lot of good to a lot of people.  You will never know what your film has done for us and our families." - Gunter S.

"Fray gets it right. Maybe you watch it and it prompts you to make the call that could save a life."
- Jeff Edwards, USMC - read full blog post here.

"This movie touched my soul." Doris Rivas, Radio Host, US Army veteran

"I am a former Navy Corpsman, I spent 4 tours in Iraq and 1 in Afghanistan. I would like to say to you that your movie Fray, which I watched tonight, is a great film. I cannot say thank you enough for it. The silence of the film may leave people who only understand mindless action lost. But, when I watched the movie, so often I felt at times I was watching part of my life. I could see the anger, rage, sadness, hopelessness, courage, and despair that that man felt. Wow.
Thank you sir, C.M."
- C.M., Navy Corps

"It is shot beautifully, acted honestly, it is heartbreaking, yet still leaves you hopeful."
- Elizabeth D. (from Amazon.com)

"The acting in this movie is superb and the story line all too believable."
- Terry C.A. (from Amazon.com)

"This film effectively pulled me into the characters state of mind, and gave me an understanding and experience worth having." F. Hoffman (from Amazon.com)
