Early Promise Fades Fast in Laid Back Indy
19 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Roommates Irene and Paula decide to take a walk to the post office on a nice spring day to mail her tax return. On the way the two get sidetracked into taking a canoe ride through the city and much further away from their destination. As they make their way back they have a series of comic and mildly bizarre encounters.

There's a nice off beat opening in Tax Day that sustains one third of the way into the film before the story becomes top heavy with filler that lengthens but does not advance the narrative. It is a lazy day film that suffers from lazy story editing that is all too willing to dwell on striking imagery and scenes of a surreal nature that are a stretch to connect.

Director Laura Collela does a fine job of filming Providence,RI giving it at times a futuristic look. The tracking shots down the river provide the film with a real grace. She also gets fine performances from Kathleen Monteleone and Donna Sorbello who play Irene and Paula. Forty something, they are contentedly jaded and layed back enough to deal with the days surprises. One just wishes that Collela had devoted more time to developing their characters rather than wearing out the welcome of the handful of gem like scenes that should meld instead of disjoint the story. Tax Day is a game effort that runs out of gas before the finish but not before displaying a couple of flashes of brilliance.
