A single mother is desperately trying to care for her mentally-handicapped son, Jakob. She's out for revenge when Jakob is charged with rape. Paige, the victim, was hired as a care-taker for Jakob and she also just wants what is best for him. But who is in the right, and what really happened? Written by
When I first saw Scalene, I left the viewing with a big WOW!. Great independent film and kudos to the director, producer, writer and actors for a simple yet well arranged movie. The reverse story technique was a nice touch. Personally, I'm tired of those so-called mega-bucks movies made up of plenty of effects and little story to them. I found sympathy for the all the characters, particularly Paige, who went to lengths to do the things she had to do. The only thing I have some issues about is the ending, it could have totally been done full circle. I recommend Scalene for those who wish to leave the beaten path of Hollywood movies to enjoy a great piece of film-making.
