That was such a beautifully paced story with a great concept that I could see the movie unfolding in front of my eyes. I can't fault the piece and the ending has a nice twist - however if it is turned into a movie, I think there will have to be a more feel good ending.

A really enjoyable piece - terrific.

A review of Road to Williamsportby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 02/23/2014This is my first review in a while, so I confess to being out of practice, and apologize in advance if my review sucks. Concept: Good The closest movie I can think of off the top of my head is "Bad News Bears" [both versions, though I prefer the original]. Is this concept original? No, but then I take the view that nothing is original, everything is just a new take on an... read
