THE LEGEND OF KATE KENSINGTON – MOVIE REVIEW 

Author – Sheila Jacobs          April 28, 2016

A perk of being a reporter was getting to go to the special media screening of this film. For people who haven’t seen any of the trailers, I hope you look it up on Facebook or Google it.

The film is an independent movie written and directed by Brad Castillo, a talented Citrus County neighbor. It stars Melony Daemer as Kate Kensington, a young woman whose fiancé gets killed at Pearl Harbor and the tragedies suffered as a result. There are many twists and turns in the plot which leads to an ending worthy of a tissue or two. Hayley Castillo plays a child who is gifted and able to feel and see things that others cannot. Her abilities frighten her as well as her mother, played by Lisa Arcaro. She is a natural.

There are many characters in the story. One of them being the city of Inverness. The film was shot in various places of Citrus County that local people will enjoy seeing.

It’s a story of faith and redemption. In trusting that there is always a plan for the way things turn out in life. Staying in the game even though you’re fearful of why things are happening. It shows that we, as mere mortals, need to live without fear, because we are never truly alone. Hayley gets to find out why it is that she is picked to solve why Kate Kensington is seen in ghostly fashion throughout the movie. It’s up to Hayley and her friends to sort through the mystery of what the sightings of Kate mean,and why her ghostly apparition is still there.

It’s a film of love, loss, trust, acceptance, and faith. It was a labor of love done by Brad Castillo, as well as every participant in this meaningful and caring film. The cast and crew became a family…and it shows in the warmth they have for each other and especially for Brad.

The film is being shown this weekend only at the Valerie Theater in Inverness. The Friday night performance has already sold out. There are tickets available for several showings on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets may be purchased on-line or at the box office.

I had already bought my tickets for the Friday night showing, so I get to see it again. That makes me happy.
