Storyline

Like most kids, Ned idolized his father and dreamed of following in his footsteps. Unfortunately, his father was a two-bit crook who spent most of his life in jail. Without a family of his own, Ned falls in with the Aryan Brotherhood. Soon after, Ned is placed in a mental hospital where he is mesmerized by a young black girl who believes Adolf Hitler was reincarnated in her. What follows is a gritty character study and poignant love story of two people brought together by a seemingly impossible connection. As a result of that connection, they both find that there is more to a person than what is on the surface. Written by Anonymous

Renner's a genius
23 April 2006 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

Tim Boughn's script for "Neo Ned" won Slamdance's screen writing award, and after four years of mostly looking for money, Van Fischer has directed an enchanting – yes, enchanting – film about a Neo-Nazi's romance at a mental hospital with a black woman who thinks she's Hitler. Jeremy Renner and Gabrielle Union give us terrific performances. Renner took a goofy, naive, offbeat approach to this violent character, and Union underplays to great affect. The movie has attracted distributors whose superiors are squeamish about finding an audience. The filmmakers are building their case, though, by winning audience awards left and right. Interestingly, they've also realized they need to give a better, truer feel for their film in festival programs, which have been frightening people off with the Neo-Nazi photo and language. Post on this message board to let distributors know of your interest.
