Well done, dark, short film.
26 November 2010 | by (Morton Grove Il) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting well acted short film about a young man of 14 looking for some kind of meaning in a life that looks meaningless. It is dark, intensive, and mysterious.

Jeremy lives in a trailer in a small town with a seemingly insensitive group of people who mock him and make his life miserable. He has just found out that his father, who is in prison, is to be moved from a close location to one hours away. Jeremy will not be able to see him regularly anymore. After that meeting, we view the family that Jeremy is living with. These people are mean except for one, who cares for Jeremy, but is too drunk to help much.

Jeremy starts searching for more, after the meeting with his father, and we follow his search. He does some reading, then looks for meaning at two churches.

While slow at times, this film is worth watching. There is a real feel for life in the trailer and the closeness and intensity of it. You feel that through camera use, scene setting, and language. The trailer has only so much space.. Only when we get out of the trailer do we move beyond narrowness. We see the larger world beyond that trailer, and watch as Jeremy tries to interact with new people and larger experiences. The larger world is represented by open fields, space, and light, and a sense of freedom beyond a very small world. The director has created situations that makes us feel uncomfortable as to contrast with that larger world that Jeremy seeks to find. That search as we all know, is worth the effort, so Jeremy represents something in all of us who look beyond our own small trailer worlds.
