Neo Ned may be ludicrous on paper, but it has what fans of independent film are looking for -- atmosphere, humanity and just a dash of fantastic drama.

Top Critic

Never boring, never pretentious, never preachy, Neo Ned could find its place alongside some of the great independent romance films of all time, if enough people are able to catch a glimpse of it.

Audience Reviews for Neo Ned

Here's an interesting movie about two individuals, with problems of their own, connect in a mental institution. They decide to take on the responsibilities of the outside world, and become part of it when their deepest fears become too much to bear. Great cast- Jeremy Renner, Gabrielle Union, Ethan Suplee, and Eddie Kay Thomas. Worth seeing!
