This movie has an intriguing plot that is carried out by strange and wonderful characters. It examines one man's time spent in a small town where the townspeople put undue faith and expectations on him.
Because the people believe the man's time is coming to an end, they seek guidance and knowledge from him that he isn't necessarily qualified to give.
The subsequent changes in people and their stories carry the audience through a variety of emotions and leave one contemplating the nature of human existence.
Highly recommended. Slater and Tunney are particularly good.
