On Movies: P.J. Cai’s Review of ‘Ronnie and the Pursuit of the Elusive Bliss’

(C) 2020 Popcorn Sky Productions

As the team who created Ronnie and the Pursuit of the Elusive Bliss prepares its next film project, it is timely (and appropriate) that P.J. Cai, blogger and a former reviewer at Epinions, wrote a review of the 2020 short film directed by actor/director/editor Juan Carlos Hernandez and written by Your Humble Correspondent over at IMDb.com.

In case you don’t often visit IMDb.com’s User Reviews section, here’s P.J.’s review in its entirety.

Politics and family can mix . . . maybe

22 March 2021

After this last horrendous election year many of us have had family ties severed due to the divisive politics of the last administration. However, this wonderful short explores one family’s political differences in a light but humorous fashion, and gives hope to those who have seen their family relationships crumble during these tumultuous times.

The music selection was perfect and fit the theme of “Ronnie . . . ” perfectly. My favorite performance was that of Ronnie played by Adria K. Woomer-Hernandez. (Those of you familiar with Seinfeld may see bits of Heidi Swedberg’s character Susan Ross in her.)

If your family gets into heated political discussions, you should definitely watch this. It’s only 20 minutes long and will cause you to think about your interactions and what’s really important in life . . . family!

If you haven’t seen Ronnie yet and would like to watch it, here it is, in its full YouTube glory.

If you have a smart TV with Internet connectivity, watch it there! It really looks and sounds great on a big screen TV and a good home theater sound system.
