Great soundtrack and picture quality, but contrived plot
3 September 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a man from the heartland of America, having a great life in New York. When he goes back home, he faces the consequences of being gay in his hometown.

In just the first minute, "Heartland" strikes me as being a well produced film. It has a fun way of presenting the introduction by using still photos. The music is upbeat, suiting the New York city lifestyle, contrasting the quiet village life. The best thing is the sharp quality of the picture, which is not a frequent occurrence with low budget shorts. The story itself is not particularly engaging, and the ending is rather contrived.

I enjoyed watching "Heartland" because of the upbeat soundtrack and the presentation of the story.
