Storyline

The portrait of an American family... The Davis household is like many in today's American landscape; A mother, a stepfather, a son, and a daughter all living together in the outskirts of a Californian suburban city; built upon the pillars of divorce. An eerie obsession... Our young hero, Devin, is an introspective, artistic child whose imaginative glow is constantly put out by his stepfather's volatile behavior. Devin transcends melancholy earthly experience by escaping into the world of the extraterrestrial. From a young age, Devin has been obsessed with astronomy, space travel, and most significantly - the possibility of life existing in a world much like our own. A close encounter... One night, Devin wakes up to the sight of what he believes to be an alien lurking between the slates of moonlight that illuminate his bedroom. Time and time again Devin is visited and tormented by this strange figure that comes to him while everyone else is sleeping. Riding over an under-lying theme ... Written by Asher Goldstein

Original, poignant, provocative
15 November 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I caught this little gem at The Kerry Film Festival where it picked up the award for Best International Short. It's an inventive and original take on what can sometimes be a well worn subject matter. This short avoids the clichés by delivering an inventive and powerful experience that ends in a satisfying twist which I won't reveal here of course.

A very well executed, very well photographed and very well acted short by all involved, (particularly young Grant Silver and the Mother Kristin Carey).

Worth catching if you can. I look forward to seeing more of this directors work.
