Matthias den Besten,
"The Indian" is a touching drama about a negligent father who must face the son he abandoned years earlier, and the emotional wreckage he caused, in order to obtain a life-saving transplant. The father hires a beautiful young mechanic to help restore an old Indian motorbike and uses her and the restoration process to manipulate his troubled teenage son's emotions. Complications arise when the father has difficulty maintaining the lie to both his son and himself. Written by

When I read in the Orange County Register that "The Indian" was to be featured at the Newport Beach Film Festival, I cleared my schedule and spread the news! I was fortunate enough to view this outstanding movie at the LA Film Featival and it was so powerful and moving that I wanted to see it again. I wasn't surprised to find a full theater. This movie is a thought provoking, heart warming look into the hearts of broken people. The story is so beautifully told. It was wonderful seeing a movie that wasn't full of fowl language and sexual innuendo. This movie should be seen by the masses. Congratulations to James Gorrie and his group of talented actors. This is a 10+
