When I watch an independent film there are a lot of ways that the viewing can go. Typically, I brace for something that doesn’t survive my criticism, due to a lack of budget, poor writing, or star power, but there are times where it leaves a big smile on my face. The Space Between is the first feature film from Amy Jo Johnson, the actor of Power Rangers stardom, and she has delivered a movie that will leave you extremely happy. For her first time behind the camera this a rousing success, in a heartfelt comedy about a family involved in a difficult situation. Along the road, they learn about how to deal with responsibilities, even if they are not by choice. The Space Between is a gentle and authentic film.
