Review of "Daddy's Girl" in Film International, Issue 29, Vol 5

From the opening credits, it is clear that Dennis King's Daddy's Girl (2006) is a product of love and dedication. A film with a message about the redemptive power of parental love, Daddy's Girl provides a dose of positive energy, serving as a testament to independent film-makers everywhere that a feature can happen with enough determination and hard work. It also helps to have something of a Renaissance man at the controls. King, in addition to directing the film, was a lead actor, producer, editor and casting director, among other thankless roles, to be sure.

The film is well shot; in fact, it is strongest when King uses the camera to depict the natural and fecund beauty of the New England landscape. He seems to juxtapose the blossoming of the scenery with that of the two female leads; indeed, this is a sophisticated device that could have been explored further to the film's benefit.

"Daddy's Girl" is ambitious, to say the least; it covers a time span of approximately 15 years in the lives of two young actresses each for the roles of Sarah and Becky- no small feat for an introductory film project. King shows great promise as a storyteller; to date "Daddy's Girl" has collected Best Drama at the New York International Film Festival and Best Director and the Los Angeles International Film Festival. His Next Feature, "Crimson Shadows" (currently in production) is certainly something to look forward to. Kudos to King and his troupe for making feature film-making more family friendly and fun.

Sirona Studios is proud to announce they have just been awarded for Best Director in LA International Film Festival; this follows closely on their award for Best Drama in NY International Film festival. As in screenings across the country, the crowd warmly received this heartwarming and inspirational film. A number of audience members could be seen wiping away tears as they were moved by this simple story of love conquering all; some of whom were men.

“Daddy’s Girl” is the story of a father raising his daughter along when along comes Becky, a girl from a troubled home with dark secrets. The story follows the lives of these two girls over 12 years as they struggle into adulthood and for Becky, to learn to cope with her the abuse in her past. Early on, Sarah decides she is going to take care of her friend Becky and she takes this responsibility to heart. Through her efforts we see a life saved and made whole.

Funny, tragic, and poignant, “Daddy’s Girl” moved the audience in ways that few movies can. One girl who saw it left 10 years of abuse as the message inspired her to get help. Dennis King, the Executive Producer, Screenwriter, and Director noted he was surprised that a movie he wrote would have such an impact. Paul Peterson has called this film the answer to “Hound Dog”, a film that caused a great controversy at the Sundance Film festival. Mr. Peterson is a child actor himself having played Jeff stone on the Donna Reed Show. He is also the president of “A minor consideration” an organization which seeks to protect child actors and promotes positive use of these young actors.

Critics had called the film “inspirational”, “a must see film”, and “finally a reason to go to the movies”.

A special screening of “Daddy’s Girl” will be shown on Saturday April 7, 2007 at 10 AM. Tickets are $10 and all proceeds will benefit the Greater Lowell Rape Crisis Center.

Dennis King, the president of Sirona Studios noted he is already working on an internet TV show and his next movie, “Crimson Shadows” to be filmed in Massachusetts once funding is secured.
