Verdict: Promising

Story: The Mouse in the Bread starts as young woman Lili (Zeroonian) is starting to try and figure out her own future, her parents John (Hauck) and Miriam (Mara) always support her, while the family starts to focus on a bigger problem, one they want to keep quiet from Lili.

Lili does see the dynamic between her parents slowly start to fall apart, while she still needs both of them in life, she is left in the dark to the problems they are facing.

Thoughts on The Mouse in the Bread

Final ThoughtsWe need to start by pointing out that this is a micro budget project from filmmaker Sharisse Zeroonian, who writes, directs and stars in this film. We do see the family dynamic that is always changing away from the children, whatever the age, as they both want to protect their children and have their own happiness, which see the strain coming. We have a cast which isn’t the most experienced that don’t do anything wrong and we are left to see just how much potential everyone in this film has, both behind and on front of the camera. Most of the film is kept in one central location within the house that helps show us just how close the family is despite the troubles they are facing.

Overall: Nice Family Drama
