Storyline

PAPER COVERS ROCK tells the story of Sam, a troubled young woman who loses custody of her six year-old daughter in the wake of an unsuccessful suicide attempt. Following a brief stay at a psychiatric facility, Sam moves in with her older sister Ed, who graciously offers to help Sam piece her life back together. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and it's not at all clear whether Ed is out to save or destroy her little sister. Written by incidental films

small indie
26 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

Sam (Jeannine Kaspar) is found by her daughter half-dead with a plastic bag over her head in a suicide attempt. She loses custody and placed in the care of Dr. Gold. She stays with her controlling older sister Ed who gets her an office cleaning job. A young executive asks her out on a date. The deli clerk always gives her a flower. She plays Paper Rock Scissors with bike shop owner for a wheel.

This is a very small indie of limited means. Jeannine Kaspar plays a very quiet character. There is limited flash in her acting until a big scene at the end. It's very much reserved film. The drama with her sister could be more demonstrative. It has a couple of big scenes. Nothing really stands out but it's a fine micro budget indie.
