A great film with brilliant performances.
2 January 2005 | by (New York, United States) – See all my reviews

This Official Sundance Film Festival Selected film was screened in Novemeber and i must say i really enjoyed it.

It is a story about a girl(Myra) who lives with her "shut in" brother(Ludlow) amazingly acted by Brendan Sexton. She gets a "boyfriend" and decides to bring him home. Ludlow is very jealous by this and throws a fit, everything goes to hell from there. Ludlow is about 19? 20? Age was never specified but he is a totally grown up man who acts like a 5 year old.

This film is a romantic comedy with just the right touch of drama, i.e (cemetery scene).

I strongly recommend this film to anyone who loves the little independent films or just great movies in general.
