DAYS WE SHARE, THE cover image
Nelisa Nieto's performance is spectacular in The Days We Share. Her acting talent plus very relatable storyline and realistic locations are all plusses. The only thing that falls short is the camerawork. Still, this film is definitely one of a kind!

The plot follows a high school girl, Riley (Nelisa Nieto), as she works with her crush, Peter (Jason Sanchez), to fix problems with her best friend, Michelle (Megan Ramon). Peter helps by telling her to think of people as stars.

The storyline is pretty good and includes friendship, romance, and self- expression. The mood changes throughout because of Riley's wide range of emotions. The cinematography in this film is not great, especially at the beginning. The camera shakes in the Art Club scene and, throughout the entire film, the camera angles aren't very good. Sometimes, the camera cuts off parts of the actors' faces. The costumes definitely suit the story line because these high schoolers are just normal kids, and the costumes represent that. Riley wears jeans, sneakers, and a baseball cap. I like this costume. The makeup that Michelle wears also shows her personality. The sets and locations are great! There is one scene where the location is un-definable, but all the rest are great. The setting of the bleachers, which is where the bonding scenes between the two friends happen, is perfect and the high school indoor designs are realistic, too. My favorite is Riley's bedroom. I can connect personally to that location. Overall, the acting performances are effective.

The protagonist is Riley, played by Nelisa Nieto who portrays this role quite well and is one of my favorite parts of this film. Megan Ramon's performance as Michelle lacks luster. Her vocal skills are good, but her facial expressions aren't quite there and she doesn't put much into her body movements or gestures either. I like when Peter talks about relating stars to people, saying that stars have cycles. This makes me want to learn more about star cycles. My favorite part of this film is Nelisa Nieto's performance as Riley. Her facial expressions, vocal acting and body language are just a few of the amazing acting skills she uses in this film. Nelisa Nieto is also in the film Critical Thinking and many other short films.

The message of this film is to express yourself and be honest with your friends.

I give The Days We Share 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18. This film is definitely appropriate for youth and family film festivals. It is designed for older kids, so parents would like it as well. Reviewed by Kyla C., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

A passive, high school artist's friendship with her bold but insecure best friend becomes more strained when her best friend has other ideas on how they should adjust to their first year of high school together.
