Soledad is an artist who has with drawn from society by moving into the desert. She lives a life alone seemingly immersed in noticing and painting the beauty that shes sees. Somewhere before the start of the movie she met Hillary. Hillary (unknown to Soledad) is a damaged woman. In the opening scenes the two of them are about to embark on a journey. To Soledad's thinking the journey is a simple car ride to Flagstaff where Hillary has arranged a gallery review for Soledad. When Soledad's car fails to start, Hilary suggests they hitch-hike. They do Hilary has a brother named Louise. Louis has a car that they can borrow. When the two ladies arrive in Phoenix, their journey like the plot itself begins to thicken. We, along with Soledad are then introduced to Louis. Louis' apartment is as messy as the clothes he wears. He has stores to tell. You will be compelled to watch as the rabbit hole Solidad finds her self within can only exit in a family's backyard. This is SOLITUDE. Written by
First, let me say that the regrettable number of "1" votes for this film cannot reflect anything other than incomprehension or spite. The qualitative reality of this film is that the writing, story and acting are better than 95% of anything available. The writing alone for this film is such that I'm puzzled why the writers/directors haven't had awards piling up in their living room since its release. (Maybe they have and I just don't know about it.) Perhaps the most remarkable thing to me about this film is how much complexity of character and conflict is revealed in the writing, all the while maintaining that elusive blend of masterful control and natural expression. Some screenwriters will be inspired by this film, others will ask themselves, "With this kind of competition, why should I bother?" How can great independent films like this get larger audiences? My sincere hope is that the writer/director duo go on to make many more films.
