Storyline

In 1973 playing it straight can get a little twisted... Set in 1973 and inspired by true events, 'American Primitive' tells the story of the havoc that is wreaked in a teenage girl's life when she discovers her widowed father is gay. Alternately comic and tragic, the film captures the homophobia of the time set against a backdrop of small town America on Cape Cod. The film utilizes emblematic music expressing the artistic and experimental freedom of the early 70s. Written by Anonymous

American primitive - one of my picks from the MG Sydney film festival
21 February 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film had it all: the drama, the love story , the funny moments and the awkward/ tense moments (Which had me at the edge of my seat) , great acting.

Loved Skye McCole Bartusiak character (played Daisy), she had a naivety about her and really made you laugh.

Danielle Savre who plays Madeline is not one dimensional , you really feel what she is feeling and you want to yell out advice.

You can't help but like Josh Peck who plays Spoke, he is such a sweetheart in the film.

Stacey Dash who played Joy (A minor part) just loved her character - so captivating too, very attractive lady (this is coming from a gay man).

I am so glad I saw this film , this is what a movie is meant to make you feel :)
