"has a lot of heart, with a nice sprinkling of comedy throughout that is sure to be a welcomed watch"
Written and Directed by Jeremy Culver, No Postage Necessary is a sweet story about redemption as George Blagden’s Sam a convicted cyber hacker sets out to get on the straight and narrow, leaving his felony behaviour behind him, at least sort of, since whilst working at the local Ice Cream store, he moonlights by impersonating a Postal Worker to obtain extra cash.
Whilst impersonating a Postal Worker, Sam encounters Raymond J. Barry’s Jack, the father of Charleene Closshey’s Josie, a widowed single mother that he is immediately smitten with and sets out to win her affections, trying to be the man that is worthy of her after he steals letters that she has written to her dead husband, who died six years prior to the event of the film, whilst serving in Afghanistan.
No Postage Necessary kept me engaged throughout, with believable chemistry from Blagden and Closshey at the centre of this story, that has the very poignant Bitcoin emergence as its backdrop, as the film sees Sam wrongfully targeted by the FBI after a theft of Bitcoin.
Michelle Moreno as Daisy, Robbie Kay as Stanley aka David, Michael Beach as Harry and Stelio Savante as FBI Agent Ames enhance the story with their roles, providing well rounded performances.
The soundtrack, including some wonderful singing from Closshey, contribute nicely to the film, as opposed to distracting from it.
Overall, No Postage Necessary has a lot to offer, it has a lot of heart, with a nice sprinkling of comedy throughout that is sure to be a welcomed watch, either snuggling up with your other half or on your own, a fine film that is inoffensive.
