Layered movie well worth the time to pick through...
Contrary to previous comments on this little jewel of an independent film, this film is worth your time. I venture to say most people who are of the nature to only rent hit movies will not get this film. These are the same people who don't seem to read either.
This jewel unfolds the fabric of many lives. A frustrated father who because of a knee injury never fulfilled his dreams and yet still desires to do what is right. A wife who at first look is the object of her husbands misplaced anger and a son who lives in fear and at the same time dreams. A seemingly simple minded neighbor woman who befriends the little boy as his only playmate. The director and writers of this film lead the viewer down a road of stereotypes. We hate the father, sympathize with the mother and son. We write off the neighbor woman as a simple minded. But as the story unravels we learn that all is not as it appears to be. We learn there are two sides to every story and like the characters not everything is just black and white. Villains become heroes and victims become cowards and the simple minded become sages.
Take the time to unravel the layers of this story and you will find the jewel inside.
