"Life of Riley is an excellent debut for Lisa Datz. It showcases her multifaceted talents as an actress, storyteller, and now, filmmaker. There is so much to unpack with this storyline, and the potential to expand on this as a series is something we can hope for. This short film is 15 minutes packed full of romance, drama, and intrigue that has left the audiences wanting more!"

"A quite unique little film as it combines elements of a classic (romantic) comedy of errors with very modern themes like (often unconscious) cultural, racial and immigration issues, told in a light-footed way that's nevertheless steeped in realism, and moving along at a pace that's guaranteed to keep one engaged. And that the racially and culturally diverse cast really live up to their roles helps make this one enjoyable and very intelligent short."
