An Effective Cautionary Tale that Resonates
26 January 2013 | by (Chicago, IL, United States) – See all my reviews

I recently purchased a Roku box, in order to stream media from my PC to my television. Something I discovered was that there were a handful of indie film apps built into the system, and, through searching around, I stumbled upon White Knuckles the other night.

After watching the film, I couldn't help but think of my parents, as well as about my own future in this lifetime. Haunting is a good word for it. It resonated with me, so much so, that I felt the need to write something.

This 'review' is not meant to read as a synopsis, but rather, a reaction. Martie Ashworth (Julie) was absolutely wonderful. She really has a quality about her that works so well. A humanity to her work that flows seamlessly from one scene to the next. She brings to Julie the sort of traits that such a character who is at a crossroads in life would need... Hopeful exhaustion, is the best way I can describe it.

Watching the character, one hopes to never allow themselves to fall into such a situation, a marriage that is dead and participated in strictly out of habit. But at the same time, one hopes that they will be just active in attempting change.

Larry Strauss (William) is incredible in this role. It is almost as if the filmmakers simply let him be and he just was this man. It is a strange feeling to empathize with a character, yet, at the same time, resent them. He, as well as the movie itself, serve as a cautionary tale to me, and I was whole-heartedly affected.

I could very much discuss every character in the piece, as I found many of the performances very effective. But I will just limit it to Ms. Ashworth and Mr. Strauss in this review.

Kudos to the filmmakers/actors/crew. I'm really glad I stumbled upon this film. I look forward to much more from this group.
