"Godspeed" is an intense, dramatic thriller set in the lingering light of the Alaskan midnight sun. Charlie Shepard is a modern day faith healer, a man who claims that if you let go and believe, then his power to heal is very real indeed. Living a hand-to-mouth, blue collar existence with his wife Rebecca and young son, Charlie ekes out a meager living from his "healing" sessions. With his marriage failing, and an old drinking habit coming back to haunt him, his family is brutally murdered by unknown assailants for seemingly no reason whatsoever. Six months later, Charlie has abandoned his former life and the house his family lived in, moving through the days' slow existence more like a ghost than a man. But then a young, mysterious girl named Sarah appears in town, and seeks out Charlie. She will become the link to his family's killings and to the murderers themselves, ultimately leading to tragic, violent consequences for all.

There's a darkness bourne of the centuries, bourne of the pain that it takes to live the day. It's long lost on the ages, but it courses through everybody's blood. I guess even mine.

Godspeed is a true independent film, Robert and the rest of the cast have done a fantastic job making a beautiful piece of art. Not only did the cinematography take my breath away, but also each character showed true. While the subject matter does make one uncomfortable at times, it shows a problem that is ignored in society and is one that should be addressed. I would also like to give a huge compliment to Cory, Robert, and Joe on their character development, as an audience member I felt true compassion for each character. This movie is one that I am very excited about adding to my collection and being able to enjoy more of these filmmakers and actors work. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys films that make you think days afterward. However I would not recommend this to children and younger teens based upon subject matter.
