What I liked

The cast of “Monkey Mind” is loaded with talent, and that alone is worth the price of admission. Darcy Rose Byrnes is an angelic yet grounded ingenue with killer pipes. Corey Page gave me chills with his warm and melancholy tones. With his impressive belt and boy-next-door good looks, Cameron Gilliam is a pop idol waiting to happen. But my favorite was Karla Kelly, who embodied her free-spirited and maternal character with effortless charm, easy comic timing, and a soaring vocal range that brought me pure joy. And the Monkeys were fantastic fun!

What I didn't like

I’d love to see this produced with a big budget!

My overall impression

Wonderfully fun and touching coming of age story with complicated characters, lessons to be learned, and a rocking soundtrack!
