Virgil Bliss

Fresh out of a long stretch in prison, Virgil Bliss (Clint Jordan) vows to go straight in this gritty, character-driven drama. But finding a job, a wife and a sense of purpose doesn't come easy when you're living in a halfway house surrounded by junkies and thugs. Things start to look up when Virgil falls for Ruby (Kirsten Russell), a prostitute and fellow lost soul, but her drug addiction stands in the way of his shot at a normal life.

An overly familiar scenario is made fresh by an intelligent screenplay and gripping performances in this low-budget, video-shot, debut indie effort.
Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
 
Too bad Maggio couldn't come up with a better script.
V.A. Musetto, New York Post
 
Shot largely in small rooms, the film has a gentle, unforced intimacy that never becomes claustrophobic.
Dave Kehr, New York Times  full review
 
Stale, futile scenario.
Dennis Lim, Village Voice  full review
