Comparable to John Sayles' Sunshine State in its overarching theme: that the dreams of one generation, however noble, may not be the dreams of their children. Can you achieve your own identity without rebelling against your parents? The movie suggests you can't -- a conclusion expressed in more colourful terms by Matt Craven's character Matthew.
It's not a fast-moving movie, but I was pulled in, thanks to the performances of Lemche, Craven and Battlestar Galactica's Michael Hogan. Looking forward to director Aubrey Nealon's next project, though one suspects bits of autobiography were all over the feature film debut of this New Denver, B.C. product.
