A story about love...
2 November 2013 | by (Colorado, United States) – See all my reviews

Laurie Collyer's SUNLIGHT JR. is a quiet meditation on true love and deep struggle. Set against the backdrop of a gritty, urban America, Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon are Missy and Richie, a couple trying to make their way despite a world that will not give them a break. Brave performances and phenomenal chemistry between Watts and Dillon bring a level of tenderness to a relationship unfolding in a world that is anything but tender. Collyer (SHERRYBABY, NUYORICAN DREAM) delivers a potent story about love and how, in a life full of sometimes seemingly insurmountable obstacles, it is truly at the core of what really matters.
