The two find a connection that may force Shawn to rethink his mission. Written by
The music and themes from this movie haunt me to this day. Similar in
feel to Vincent Gallo's "Buffalo 66," it portrays the conflict between
the self, family and romantic relationships. One aspect of the film
that stands out is the acting. The characters are immensely vulnerable
and the actors represent this expertly. The minimalist dialog further
showcases the acting talent. The pacing is a perfect fit to the story.
Every detail has been attended to -- there are no jarring moments or
awkward transitions. Clearly a labor of love, one person wrote,
directed, filmed, acted in and edited the movie. It is very relatable
and well worth a viewing!
