I recently caught this at a festival of short films and it far and away stood out among all the other films that screened. Lonely Place has a superb visual look to it, is consistently involving in its storytelling, and features an excellent lead performance from Tess Harper. The film doesn't need any trickery or flash, instead relying on superb craftsmanship that is quite rare for this form. Writer/director Kevin Ackerman shows a command of the medium that is both assured and evocative, using silence, mood, and furtive looks to tell his engrossing tale of a woman done wrong. With nary a false note, Lonely Place sticks with you long after the film is over. See it if you can on the big screen.
