This weekend I attended the premiere of "Not Since You" at Athens Cine. I cannot stop bragging about the film- I was truly impressed with everything from the characters, the scenery and the music to the story line itself.
"Not Since you," produced by Epting Events' Ashley Epting, is a film that everyone will enjoy. It is the story of a group of once tight-knit college friends coming back together for a wedding-and having unresolved issues resurface even after years apart from one another. It addresses issues that we have all dealt with such as tensions in distant relationships, reevaluating life, finding love, growing up, getting married and even the tragic events of September 11.
Most importantly, it is set in this beautiful and historic town of Athens. Not only is the film set in Athens, it portrays Athens as itself- a unique and diverse town filled with great music and art.
Several historic landmarks and familiar faces are featured in the movie, including The Hill, The Arch, The Tree That Owns Itself, Jackson Street Bookstore and Athens-Ben Epps Airport, to name a few. You will immediately recognize cast members from well-known film and television shows including Desmond Harrington of "Dexter" and Kathleen Robertson of "90210." Other actors include Christian Kane, Sara Rue, Jon Abrahams and Will Estes.
"Not Since You" will be at Athens Cine until April 15. Every night this week from Monday - Thursday, patrons can elect for one dollar from each ticket to go to the designated charity of the day. On Friday, April 9, Epting Events will host a VIP Cocktail which will include a ticket to the screening, drinks, a cocktail buffet and a meet and greet with Ashley Epting.
Please spread the word about this movie around Athens and other communities, and most importantly, buy a ticket! I promise you will not be disappointed.
