STAUTS PENDING is not yet released, but a few industry folks have taken a look. Here's what they've said so far...



A compelling story, deceptively simple and beautifully told. I really enjoyed these two people, and their fumblings and stumblings toward a commitment.  


Ben Zolno has a light touch and a deep feel for the delicate, treacherous, hide-and-seek of relationships.”


– Don Roos


“Charming… It's clever, taut and authentic.


The film shows the director has real skills…”


– Stephen Nemeth


“A gorgeous, romantic portrait of a generation... It examines the plight of the social media age on us all, without being derisive of anyone…


A lot of people are going to relate to this film.


I haven’t seen anything like it.  It’s a modern love story that’s really a nice step forward for the indie filmmaking tradition.”


– Johnny O’Hara
