Storyline

Jess (18) and Moss (12) are second cousins who have spent their summers together since either of them can remember. Without immediate families that they can relate to, and lacking friends their own age, all they have is each other. Through a series of memories and vignettes, 'Jess + Moss' recounts the events of the last summer they shared together. Shot entirely on location with a variety of expired and often degraded film stocks, 'Jess + Moss' captures the evocative and haunting character of the dark fire tobacco fields of rural Western Kentucky.

Beautiful rural decay
5 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Jess (Sarah Hagan) and Moss (Austin Vickers) are second cousins. Their parents were best of friends. They spend their summers together. She likes to draw. They wonder aimlessly through the tobacco fields and abandoned buildings of Kentucky.

This film looks beautiful with a degraded feel of the rural decay. It's not just the rural locations, or the rundown junk. It's the low grade film and the way it's shot. There isn't much of a story as the movie meanders from one scene to the next. Sometimes there are no rhyme or reason. It's a just a series of scenes. It does turn a little bit disturbing. In the end, it's a very fascinating little movie. It's a lazy endless summer captured on film.
