Light of Mine Opens a Little Window Letting In Some Weighty Wonder
30 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There cannot be a spoiler as the very first scene starring the principal actors Rebecca Sanborn and Ji Tanzer visiting an ocular specialist delivers a diagnosis that the rest of this swift and emotionally powerful movie forces us, along with the characters to empathetically adjust to. Beautifully filmed in lush if twilit Portland, the verdant and dun awesome Columbia River Gorge and a Yellowstone Park more vivid than the Flintstones. The actors all seem natural, as though playing themselves, yet from the Q & A at the premiere at the Whitsell Theater in the Portland Art Museum this is not a biographical story. Without the volatile and edgy conflict of a John Cassavettes film, "Light of Mine" conveys the stakes involved for the characters, suggesting the gravity of inevitability, yet leavened with the little window of wonder that a loving human (if a Higher Power happens to be away on business) can provide. This movie feels like it planted a seed that will blossom within me whenever the going gets tougher than I feel up to handling...
