I saw A Simple Curve in the theatre and am sad that due to its limited release most people won't have a chance to enjoy the grandeur of the cinematography the way its intended. Visually, the film manages to capture the Kootenay region in a way that few films manage. It is well worth hunting down a theatre that is showing this film - it deserves to be seen.
The story is also a wonderful one. A coming of age story with some nice twists, it has a gentle humour to it that manages to poke fun at all the hippie stereotypes while still showing respect for the idealism of the era.
Kris Lemche as Caleb manages to give a consistently strong performances despite the fact his role is pretty demanding and he is in every scene. The wisdom and humour that Caleb shows through the movie is a pleasure to watch.
