Drawing With Chalk is all about obligations and dreams and what happens when the two collide. Prompted by their own experiences as aging artists facing tough choices about the future, co-writers Todd Giglio (who also directs) and Christopher Springer, star as lifelong friends, Jay and Matt, two 40 year-old musicians attempting to jump start their stalled career. As Matt's middle-age anxiety sets in, Jay struggles to find a balance between his music and family, while negotiating the minefields of friendship and marriage when the two worlds don't fit together. Experience the motion picture critics call, "a beautifully constructed, written and acted film." "[Giglio and Springer] capture that determination to do what you love, and the way it conflicts with everyday life, as well as anyone ever has." And see why The Movie Guys say, "distributors should line up to meet [first time director] Todd Giglio." Told with heart and humor and featuring a stellar, multi-cultural cast, lead by rising Bollywood star, Pooja Kumar, Drawing With Chalk is a slice of life that will captivate and inspire. --(c) Official Site … More

Critic Reviews for Drawing with Chalk
Screaming "vanity project" from every hackneyed frame, "Drawing With Chalk" is yet another example of midlife American males doing all they can to avoid acting their age.
Chalk suffers overall from a lack of subtlety, as problems abruptly get thrust into the foreground with little buildup or internal consistency.
When will American directors understand that it's okay, sometimes even wonderful, for a film to be silent?
Tender, genuinely heartfelt, inspirational, refreshingly unpredictable and, above all, relatable.
