Trivia

Because props didn't have a wedding ring for Andrea's husband, the 1st AC provided his for use by the actor. It wasn't a good fit, and went flying off of the actor's finger in rehearsal. The actor was nervous about losing it, and fiddles with it in his scenes. See more »

True independent film
21 May 2009 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This my favorite independent film of 2008. Stunning photography, beautiful storytelling, powerful emotional resonance...it's the kind of film that scored well with both critics and audiences. It is also one of the few films set in Texas that looks and feels like Texas.

The real achievement of this film is the portrayal of family members trying to communicate, to connect emotionally, despite having possibly disappointed each other or feeling like they have not lived up to each other's expectations. The bonds between blood family and those that come to be as close (or closer) than blood family is at the heart of this film.

Despite it's humor and touching moments the grim reality of inevitable change in life is AUGUST EVENING's reveal.
