 "Little Gorilla" Review 
Add to favorites

Easily the Heartland film that had the "Aw shucks" factor going for it, "Little Gorilla" is the story of one little boy's attempt to overcome his fear of the massive monkey bars on a local playground. The family cast includes Daniel, Katie and Nicky Parks, and their chemistry helps make "Little Gorilla" an adorable, if slight, short film. The sound mix during the film's Heartland screening sounded a bit off-balance, a distraction noted by others in the audience. Written and directed by Harry Kellerman, "Little Gorilla" reveals a filmmaker with promise and a unique ability to tap into the human spirit.
