Storyline

Floating is the story of a young man's struggle to come of age during a violent period of emotional and financial bankruptcy. The film stars Norman Reedus as Van, a son shouldering the responsibility of his embittered father, with no one to nurture him through his own pain. Van's father is so engrossed in his own troubles that he fails to emotionally support his son. As Doug, Chad Lowe provides Van with friendship, but more importantly, with the knowledge that a "perfect life" isn't always what it seems. After Van and Doug engage in a crime spree that ends in tragedy, father and son finally come together for the first time to transcend mourning. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Van: I had it. The white picket fence life. Good family. Good friends. Good life. Then my dad blew it. Screwed himself up in a car accident. My mom couldn't take it, so she split... taking most of our money with her. I was kinda depressed for awhile, but now I'm doin' all right.

very intense
26 May 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at how well acted this film is. Norman Reedus is fantastic, as is Chad Lowe. The subject matter is intense, and sometimes slightly overrought, but the film works enormously well as a study of two young men dealing with finding their own path away from their fathers.
