Ripple Effect’s beautiful and intriguing story is told by writer/director/producer Philippe Caland and brought to life by it’s magnificent cast, Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker,  and Academy Award nominated actresses Virginia Madsen (Sideways) and Minnie Driver (Phantom of the Opera, Good Will Hunting). Scott Mansfield, CEO of monterey media is confident of the film moving beyond its initial strong art house appeal, “Watching these wonderful actors in this captivating and uplifting story is a stimulating evening in any movie theater.”

Jay Levin of LA Weekly raves, “Compelling and original. Ripple Effect tears the veils off from the outset and keeps tearing until the characters - and audience - have been swept through their own high-drama ripple effect. Enjoyable alone for watching Forest Whitaker, Virginia Madsen and Caland.”
