While on a camping trip, several friends find themselves in an unbearable dilemma when one of them is suspected of committing a hate crime against a gay teenager. Accusations fly. Loyalty is questioned. Friends become enemies. Guilt sets in. From award-winning filmmaker Anthony Spadaccini comes a unique indie film in the cinema verite tradition that attacks issues of friendship, loyalty, and homophobia in today's society. Written by
I watched 'Unstable' last night after receiving it in the mail on Monday. Going into the movie and knowing what the film was generally about, that being a hate crime, it took me a few minutes to clear my head and go into the film with an open mind. This film truly pulled at every emotion I have. It progressed gradually from happiness to confusion to shock and disgust. The confrontation between the two focal characters came across flawlessly. You could see the hatred building as time progressed. Others around it tried to have a good time but they just couldn't help defending the one being pushed around. The ending came out of nowhere and my mouth dropped as the closing credits rolled. I highly recommend this film to anyone and everyone that is or knows anyone that is considered a minority. The struggle that Anthony had to go through in the movie is just too unbearable to watch. I can't even begin to fathom what he must have been thinking. The confusion of defending a friend versus blaming the friend of a crime is something I have never been a part of. A definite must watch film that will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions! Thank you for creating a film like this and to open my eyes more on the horrors and hatred that run wild in this World that we live in.
