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.

It drags; it's boring
18 June 2000 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

I'm a MAJOR Chad Lowe fan, and he is good in this, but unfortunately this films just drags at a snail's pace. It was like torment sitting through it. It was a good premise for a film, and I'm not sure what's missing, but SOMETHING is missing. It lacks tension even during scenes that ARE tense.
