Excellent Writing and Performances Create a Valuable Film
Sad, poignant, and rich, this quiet film will give you a glimpse of the human condition from the unique voice of Stephen Berra who writes and directs. He has created something to be forever proud and for those of us that run across it over time on NetFlix (or like I did recently on The Movie Channel) to be thankful for.
The presence of wonderful actors including Harry Dean Stanton, Bill Paxton, and Zooey Deschanel should draw people to this film and the excellent acting and writing will hold them until its end.
Mark Webber is warm and believable as the young man stuck in a Nebraska town that is frigid both physically and existentially.
Zooey creates a memorable character and even briefly sings in this film which is always a delight. Give this one a try. It will not waste your time.
