My thoughts… Dakota Skye is a brilliant independent film! I’ve watched it more times than I can even remember! I can’t explain it – something about this movie instantly struck a chord with me! I stumbled upon Dakota Skye purely by chance on a premium cable channel. I started watching 2o minutes in and, when it was over, I immediately went online and ordered the DVD. I couldn’t wait to see those first 20 minutes! Luckily, the movie was playing again that weekend, before my DVD was scheduled to arrive! I was not disappointed! Now, when I watch Dakota Skye, I feel like I’m catching up with an old friend, and it feels good.
I rambled on and on, for weeks, about Dakota Skye to my friends and family long before I ever started my first blog, but I only wrote one post online since. Read that post on MHE (here).
