While on location in a spooky Romanian villa with his Hollywood big-shot mom and her dorky boyfriend, twelve-year-old Kevin befriends a Renaissance-era girl ghost who helps him cause unrest on the set.
"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
The Film Catalogue
I recently saw this film at the Newport Beach Film Festival and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Despite arriving almost 30 minutes early on a Sunday evening, the place was packed and we were lucky to find two seats in the third row. This is a very touching story that made us both laugh and cry. The acting was fantastic, and although this was the first I had ever seen of Matt Dallas, I expect he will be the next big heart throb. I highly recommend this film and only wish we had brought my teenage son to see it. This is a movie that can be appreciated by all age groups, young to old. I hope to have the opportunity to see this movie again soon in the theaters!
