great movie

The Film:

is a melancholic love story about a young men living in a field with his parents, the love part starts when Mason Mullich (Vincent Kartheiser),is led down on the ground and a new girl, Danny Voss (Taryn Manning)move out to the field. When they met, instantly, mason starts to have feelings for her and with time, she does to. When everything goes great for Mason and Danny, Mason's father, Luke Mullich (Arliss Howard) hit a man on the road and kill him, when he realize what he has done, comeback to his home and take some things to buried the body, Mason ask him what is going on and if he wanted help, Luke try to tell him that everything is alright, that he just got stuck in the wheat dust because of the rain, but mason knows that he is lying so he decides to go with him and help him.

In the place when the crash occur, Mason digs the wheel up whereas his father is in the car and when he falls down because of the mud he see a men covert with mud and try to make sure if he stills alive or dead, the he turns back and see his dad scare an he runs away with the car and mason is left alone there.

The following morning, Manson is stopped by it in the police station for being caught in the crime scene next to the body.

Manson never confess and for that is sent to jail for a couple of years. He never stop to think about Danny, but when he went out to jail and comeback to town, he found out that Danny was moved on and she was dating whit another guy.

To end with the story, Manson comes back with Manson and when Danny's mom,(Michelle Forbes) notice that her daughter is falling in love, she decides that it is time to go to another place. Danny refuse to stay away from Manson and she kills her self in the lake where Manson and a friend were asleep. When Manson wakes up, he see Danny's body floating on the lake, he tries to save her, but she is already dead. To end with the film, Manson kills him self in the same way of Danny.

I think that is a marvelous film, there's nothing wrong about this movie, the music, the locations, the actors, the producers, the director, everything gets together to create this excellent love story with such a great twists.

Definitely one of the best independent films that i have ever seeing and it worth to spend 93 minutes of your life to see it and analyze it.
