Film review: 'Silent Lies'

Film review: 'Silent Lies'
SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- The Saltemeir family and the viewer go through a very rough time in "Silent Lies", a dark and uncompromising look at incest and child abuse. The low-budget debut project of director Peter Kiwitt and writer Samuel Bernstein screened this month at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, and it's solid enough to achieve moderate success on cable and video.

Set in a small Texas town, "Silent Lies" features Elizabeth Anne Allen as college-bound 17-year-old Shelly, daughter of the monstrous Carl (Michael Harris), a domineering con man with a socially reprehensible attitude toward his own children. These two talented performers lead the viewer through co-producer Bernstein's wrenching scenario of a victim's growing desire for an end to her misery.

The independent production is not without awkward moments and the filmmaking is a bit raw, but the subject matter is guaranteed to arouse the viewer. Apart from the violent ending, the story line is unsettling like a psychological horror film and all too believable.

Bright and pretty, Shelly is an academic wonder but her only close friend is Raymond (Cedrick Terrell), a shy and caring classmate. Her father has been away for two years hiding from the law as the film opens. Shelly and younger sister Tanya (Dana Daurey) live with their trashy stepmother Ruby (Bonnie Burroughs).

One day Carl comes home and the bad dreams haunting Shelly take a concrete form. At first he's on relatively good behavior and gives her a classic Mustang convertible as a gift. Soon, however, the unrepentant misogynist and pedophile has beaten up Ruby and makes Shelly uncomfortable with his presence and blunt talk about sex.

Some of the most difficult material in the film is alluded to in flashbacks, wherein it's clear that Shelly endured unmentionable abuses as a child.

But she has grown since then and can no longer tolerate her father's sexual advances. When she refuses, Carl moves on to 14-year-old Tanya, who is already flirting shamelessly with boys. Unable to tell anyone of her own situation, Shelly panics when she sees Tanya encouraging Carl. Shelly does something drastic and then starts to plan retribution for the evil, manipulative Carl.

The climax in an abandoned ranch house, which involves Raymond, is the film's one major concession to audience expectations, but there are no winners in this sad story, only survivors.

Terrell (ABC's "Dangerous Minds") is a quiet, strong presence and Daurey is vital as the emotionally explosive and heartbreakingly naive Tanya. But the film belongs to Allen ("Crimes of the Heart") and Harris (UPN's "The Burning Zone"). The latter is riveting and repellent as the "monster" of "Silent Lies", while Allen is never less than convincing as the heroine torn apart by her pain and shame.
