The Movie

"Everyone should watch this film at least once."

"An inspiring moment in life perfectly captured."




"The two women in this film were perfect."

"TOUCH is more than a brilliant example of filmmaking. It is a reminder that even the smallest act of compassion can make the biggest difference in someone's life."


"The dramatic tension is thick over the brief running time."



"McGowan demonstrates a keen understanding of the short form populating her film with just two finely crafted characters played by actors up to the challenge. The understated narrative is enough to hold viewer attention and the excellent cinematography gives this small piece feature feel. Budding filmmakers take note: more often than not this is the best way to make a short film on a limited budget."

"TOUCH is a stand-alone, self-contained, complete film. Viewers will be left wanting more, however, because the film introduces us to two souls drawn together by chance each sharing with the other intimately during a momentary encounter."
