Powerful performances
16 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My 10 out of 10 review is based on the story and character, since this is an indie films that lacks even a modest budget. As far as filmmaking goes, it doesn't matter, since the story itself is deeply personal and moving, and the performances -- especially Perry King -- are epic. The story has a raw feel to it that really connected with me, at least, and I believe would touch others who have faced drama within their family lives. Also, for such a heavy topic, I like the moments of levity that keep the movie entertaining and easier to digest. I actually wish the movie had a bigger budget to throw in some hip tunes from the '60s and '70s that might accentuate the emotions of the film. I mean, the story is universal, but there is a '60s social vibe -- a cultural change of guard if you will -- that permeates in the writings and setting. Clearly Perry's character is born out of that era and those ideas, which are passed along to his son, who later fears dangerous acts of protest by a close friend. Maybe it is the precise nuance influenced by cultural changes that attracted me to this movie. If that is the case, I'd say this movie is better suited for the Dylan and Stones fans than for the Nickelback and American Idol crowd, though I still think anyone who has experience family dysfunction and struggle with enjoy it. I saw this film at the Santa Barbara Film Festival several years ago, and I just saw it here on IMDb. I don't know if it is on Netflix, but if it is, I'll probably give it another spin. Overall, a fine film I wholly recommend.
