Tremendously fine debut work
22 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This multi-layered work is a true voice for independent film making. A complex story unfolds through this film. The audience is required to deeply participate in the lives of the characters as they attempt to make sense of tragedy, and then to pick up the pieces after the tragedy puts the light on the character of the central actors. My god, what a film. Truly magnificent.

The location for the movie was perfect to its stark reality. The coast of Maine is strong and beautiful. In this film we see that place in its winter coat.

The many conflicts to which the human soul is heir, honor, betrayal, love, abandonment, community, loathing, all meld together and then shred apart in the film as in life. Can there be forgiveness in the end? Can anyone forgive this?

What a movie. Just beautiful, just gritty, just raw, just beautiful.
