Film Threat magazine gives CHLOE 3 1/2 Stars! Check it out after the jump:
“Princeton Holt’s The 10 Commandments of Chloe plays out almost like a dream. Musician Chloe (Naama Kates) arrives in Nashville and begins the arduous task of finding a venue willing to give her a spot to perform.

Well, things happen, and there is a progression made from opening to closing, but it’s more true to the way life works. Which is, we might have small evolutions, or small successes and failures, but it’s not always a resounding arc of character growth where Event A sets off Event and Catharsis B.”
