Moved by public reaction to a bleeding Virgin Mary statue, the eldest daughter of a despondent local family descends into a state of spiritual reflection, examining fact, fantasy and the undeniable feeling that all is not what it seems. Written by
Santa Croce is a great display of skill and talent from Gavin Heffernan. I think shorts are always difficult to get right and this director has chosen the appropriate level of minimalism and action to fit his story of a lost and broken family rediscovering faith.
I would, however, like to see this up-and-coming director/writer take some big risks with his next project. As a preference to this writer, think more David Lynch and less Cameron Crowe. I suppose that makes Heffernan the next Cronenberg -- a suitable title for a new Canadian talent.
Look out for this new Director.
