Storyline

Angie has flashbacks while working with the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon. She replays her tormented past through a sexual encounter with an actor that becomes angry and assaultive. Her brother Kurt watches from the closet. Angie attacks him, then turns her anger inward and attempts suicide. Detective Purdue investigates the crime scene. When his search turns up drug paraphernalia and a large stash of money, Purdue pursues the case. His interest in the case is exacerbated by the recent suicide of his daughter from a drug overdose. Angie is placed under the psychiatric care of Nathan Andrews, a clinical psychologist. Andrews tries to make sense of Angie's intrapsychic world, while Purdue relentlessly pursues the criminal case. What the two gradually unravel in Angie's and Kurt's history draws them both in beyond the boundaries of their professions. Angie's and Kurt's past catches up with them. Mick Callaway, their stepfather, stalks the young victimized innocents, seeking ... Written by David Oas

Darkly intriguing, Raspberry Heaven keeps you engaged.
12 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Angie is a darkly disturbed young woman whose moods and personality appear to shift before our eyes. Her brother, Kurt, is another dark soul, whose joyless dedication to protecting his sister lets us know that, in spite of her sometimes hostile demeanor and aggressive tendencies, this girl needs a lot of protecting. As we are drawn into their lives, past and present, the audience begins to understand the mutual dependence and alienation of these two vulnerable central characters. The secondary characters are equally intense. Drawn with sensitivity and insight, the personalities who populate this taut drama are both believable and bizarre. Their psychological complexity infuses their pain and conflict with genuine humanity and elicits the compassion and concern of the viewer. The tension of the plot and evolution of the characters keeps the audience engaged. There are twists and turns, surprises and resolutions. The dialogue is well-crafted, pacing is quick but not breathless. An exciting first effort from a promising writer/director, Raspberry Heaven leaves us looking forward to what comes next from David Oas.
