About the Movie

The nearly dialogue-free narrative is articulated solely through Matt Zarley and Andy Zulla (Smash)’s soulful pop score. . . introducing a fresh new format in musical storytelling. George Takei co-stars.

"Hopeful Romantic" Works
I was skeptical of Matt Zarley's ability to build a piece that worked dramitically. He's an able pop singer, but popsters are not generally great dramatists. Still, I figured I would just give is a look, after having seen some of the teasers posted on YouTube. "Hopeful Romantic" is a series of pop songs, in a kind of extended, or album form, of music video; but Mr. Zarley did manage to build a dramtic arc through the film. It's a genuinely sweet film at its heart, and goodness and kindness shine through the piece from start to finish. It's all a bit too new-agey for me, but in the end I felt happier for spending the time to experience it. I am glad I spent the $2.99 for the download on iTunes, and I can recommend it.
Matt Zarley delivers
Always an incredible musical talent this film shows how versatile he is.
