MSN Movies calls Breakfast with Curtis, the latest feature film by FAV faculty member Laura Colella, “funny” and “heartwarming,” packing “a big emotional wallop.” In noting that it’s “free-floating and bucolic,” Variety predicts that her “tale of a lad’s seminal summer will win hearts and minds.”

The exciting news is that since Laura has now won a $50,000 Jameson Find Your Audience Award from Film Independent in Los Angeles, more people may actually get a chance to see Breakfast with Curtis, which has been on the festival circuit since premiering last summer at the LA Film Festival.

This video shows Laura accepting the award at the organization’s Spirit Award ceremony hosted by Salma Hayak and Jeremy Renner on January 12. Watch for more news on her fabulous film – made with plenty of local talent – in the coming months.
