Small film with certain qualities
11 November 2000 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews



Obscure film set in the mountains of West Virginia. The movie centres on four strange people, all wanting different things out of life and each other. The quality of the movie is what lets it down, because the acting is quite brilliant, especially from Martin Sheen and Davey Davidson. They share some great one on one scenes together and develop a sense of atmosphere and meaning to the whole film. The intentions of such a small scale film it means well.
