Audiences Agree, Simple Things Win
Independent film "Simple Things" (aka Country Remedy) wins Audience Award

Hollywood, CA (07/23/2007) - The independent feature film that is quietly sweeping the country, "Simple Things" took home the Audience Award at the Real to Reel Film Festival this weekend. Executive Producer, David Huff was on-hand to accept the award. This marks the ninth major award “Simple Things” has won this year.

A wonderful family story, "Simple Things" written and directed by award winning Andrew C. Erin and produced by multi award winning Tosca Musk (Back 40 Films in association with Musk Entertainment); is inspired by the writings of Lewis Hine Award Winner , recipient of North Carolina's Order of the Long Leaf Pine and Sr. Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Olson Huff.

In "Simple Things", Dr. Evan Gibbs has the world on a string. The leading pediatrician at a Chicago’s children’s hospital, he is poised to takeover as department chair. When cancer suddenly takes the life of his wife, Dr. Gibbs is devastated. Struggling with his loss, he buries himself in work, succeeding only in isolating himself from his son, who so desperately needs him. Begrudgingly and under the very strong suggestion of his hospital medical director, Dr. Gibbs consents to aid a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina by setting up a medical clinic during his now mandatory summer vacation. Everything is not what he expects; his big city attitude clashes against the ways of the small community. Through the support of a colorful cast of characters, a mix of drama and humor, Dr. Gibbs finds the strength to face his loss and reconnect with his son, while discovering that the “simple things” are the most important.

A triumphant vote that audiences are looking for positive, value-based entertainment "Simple Things" is currently touring the festival circuit and is distributed by Screen Ventures Media.
